Associate Director of Certification
Jessica fell in love with growing food for her community while working alongside her parents and grandparents in their gardens and orchard, and later through work with market farms in Northwest Pennsylvania and CSA farms around the country. Jessica joined Real Organic Project because she believes that all organic agriculture, at its heart, is the stewardship of healthy soil. Real Organic farmers serve as the linchpins that revitalize communities, conserve land and culture, and reverse climate change. She also serves on the Board of Directors of the Biodynamic Demeter Alliance. She recently began her own small farming project in Pennsylvania, implementing organic, biodynamic and permaculture practices.
