Raphaël brings to her work a passion for regenerative agriculture, community development, and social justice. Growing up in California informed her diverse background in farming, the arts, education and sociology. She views her work as stewardship and draws on her knowledge from over twenty years of experience in food systems. She believes in the power of regenerative agriculture to bring together the nourishment of body, land, and community; and commits her work to Equity, Justice and Liberation, for all people. Raphaël currently resides in Portland, Oregon, where she can be found supporting local acts of resilience, trail running, and knitting.
