The Mother Lode Attracts Emerging Leaders in the Farm to School Movement by Keeping it Local

“Locally grown” has a new meaning for University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) and FoodCorps in the Mother Lode region of the California Foothills. In their second year as a FoodCorps service site, the UCCE, in partnership with Gardens to Grow In, now has two locally grown service members – one in Calaveras and the other in El Dorado. … FoodCorps recruits nationally and had well over 1000 applications for the 182 service positions in 16 states and the District of Columbia for the 2014/2015 service term. This year both UCCE service members, Emily Metzger (Calaveras) and Monica Drazba (El Dorado) have Northern California roots. … Metzger was born and raised in Calaveras County and is a graduate of Bret Harte High School in Angels Camp. She got her BA degree in Liberal Studies/Education at Westmont College in Santa Barbara. more
