Frieda Schwebel

Event Researcher

Sacramento & Surrounding Areas

I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. It's easy.

My path to green action had its foundation set by my parents, a couple of tree-hugging hippies who raised us on tofu and garden-grown veggies, and lectured us about fast food companies cutting down the rainforest to raise the cattle to make the cheap happy meal we were whining for. This way of thinking globally stuck with me and led me to UC Davis studying sustainable agriculture, and earning a degree in Plant Sciences. Our food systems are at the root of both environmental and community health, and that intersection is where I believe we can have transformative experiences at the local level. By strengthening our local resources and connections we lay the groundwork for larger movements, and the possibility of building a safer and more sustainable way of life that is accessible to everyone. I'm passionate about connecting people to resources already available in their community, and building solidarity in communities to push forward impactful change and create more pathways to sustainable and healthy lives. In a time when we are bombarded by dire predictions for Earth and our way of life on a daily basis, the power that people hold when they come together gives me hope. We have the power to build a better world, and we will.
