Joanna Letz is the granddaughter of Jewish immigrants from Poland. Both sides of her family were poultry farmers (in New Jersey and California). Her California Grandpa had a big garden, and was always growing things. Joanna just knew about growing plants from an early age. She’s got growing in her genes.

She was raised in Oakland, California, did a six-month program at University of California Santa Cruz in Agroecology, and worked at a number of famous California farms (Slide Ranch, Green Gulch, Amigo Bob’s place - Heaven and Earth Farm). Joanna took all this experience in farming and took the plunge in 204 to start her own farm business. With no land and no equipment, Joanna had to find just the right opportunity to get things going.
