April Farnum
Operations & Marketing Manager

April has over ten years of experience as a graphic designer, photographer and writer. Passionate about food justice and sustainability, she worked as a Community Garden Leader for Denver Urban Gardens for five years where she taught residents in a low-income neighborhood how to grow organic vegetables, fruits and herbs. She implemented a farm-to-cafeteria program as well as a food donation service for the homeless. April started an edible landscaping business converting unsustainable grass lawns to organic vegetable gardens and taught homeowners how to grow, cook and preserve food. Before relocating to San Francisco, she traveled the West Coast for a year, working with small scale farmers and artists.
