Mindy Rider

food production supervisor

I am the Food Production Coordinator.

This means I get to spend my days with dirt under my nails, wrestling with Idaho weather and coaxing seeds and baby plants into their full potential and into people’s bellies.  Oh and wrangling rogue chickens back into their pen with the help of my dog, Frankie.

Who are your social and food justice heroes?

Bryant Terry, Michelle and Barack Obama, Soul Fire Farm
