Former Content Manager at Bioneers
Esther has attended conferences, taken classes, participated in workshops, and read extensively to further her knowledge of green living. She's been inspired and informed by her direct work writing, editing and managing content for Bioneers over a period of five years. During that time, she also worked closely with Nikki Spangenberg and Peter Warshall on the Dreaming New Mexico, a ground-breaking and award-winning project that inspires us all to dream, and then work to create a more sustainable future for our children.
Organic Food & Products
Esther is an organics expert and enthusiast. Her first experiences with organic food and farming happened as a child, digging her toes in the fertile garden soil. She has written about organic farming and products for many years, but her passionate support for organics was strengthened even further by her son's diagnosis with stage-4 cancer at the age of 18 months. She is a passionate advocate for local, sustainable and healthy foods, that's both safe and accessible.
Food and Farming Project
Esther also worked with Arty Mangan on the Food and Farming Project. She's been inspired and has learned a great deal from his Seed Project, as well as his many associations with top-notch, inspiring and revolutionary advocates in the field of food and farming. She firmly believes that supporting organic foods and products is the best way to ensure healthy (and nourishing) living.
