Co-Creative Foodways aims to empower everyone to be food secure and share the bounty. We teach how to work with Nature while cultivating healthy food plants in all kinds of spaces. Neighborhood gardens foster regional food sovereignty, so this work is about expanding the existence of food gardens everywhere, while supporting folks who are ready to pitch in and grow!

Kerry’s Agroecology journey began well before earning a BS in Plant Science & Mechanized Agriculture from CSU-Fresno, having spent much time on her grandparents’ working cattle ranch throughout childhood. A continuing facination with stewardship as a vocation led to work as an Integrated Pest Management/Agronomy Consultant, supporting farmers in California’s Central and Sacramento Valleys. Earning an MS in Community Development from UC Davis and cultivating whole systems thinking worked well in early endeavors as a farm manager and Permaculture Educator at DQ University, where Kerry also co-led land restoration efforts to regenerate a decimated ecosystem.

Work in Integrated Pest Management and Agroecology (see BIRC CAFF and Dietrick Institute) accompanied the founding of Interactive Farm Services, an agronomic consultancy helping conventional farms to transition away from toxic management practices while integrating nutritional and biological technologies, producing healthy plants and superior farm products.

The exploration continues outside of commercial farm settings today. Everyone can grow some food and the tools to do so are more effective and fun to use than ever, so let’s get growing!

We look forward to serving you!
