How might your current work contribute to the sustainability movement?
We are Beef Producers. My family & I raise and I market Certified Organic 100% Grass Fed Beef. We live in Pozo on the same Ranch that my grandparents and great grandparents did.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Sustainability & Transition movement? Why are you interested?
There is a lot of knowledge that will be lost when the older generation passes on, we need to step up and learn from them now. Before it is too late.
As a member of the Central Coast Ag Co-Op, I am interested in community involvement in the "Buy Local" program and consumer education regarding "safe food". Know your farmer and Rancher.
I am interested in meeting more of our neighbors and in bringing back the days of helping one another.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
As I said before, I live on a family owned & operated working cattle Ranch. This is something that I want to be able to pass on to my children and grandchildren.
As a 4th generation cattle rancher, I feel that I have considerable knowledge to share with other individuals in this community.
What aspects of the sustainability movement most interests you?
I am very interested in all aspects of the Transition movement. I am interested in answering questions about raising Beef Cattle from those persons who may like more information...regardless of whether they would be making a purchase. We welcome questions regarding our land, our growing protocol and other issues surrounding the livestock business.
