Sari Albornoz

Grow Local Program Director

Sari Albornoz holds a Bachelor of Arts in Biology and Anthropology from Reed College, and a life-long interest in ecology, conservation, and the relationship between nature's processes and human society. She is inspired by the many ways in which community and school food gardening can positively impact individuals, communities, and the environment, and she is passionate about spreading awareness of these benefits to the people of her native Austin. Previous to starting work with the Sustainable Food Center, Sari spent a year gardening with youth as part of her term of service with AmeriCorps/4-H CAPITAL. Sari greatly enjoys tasting new foods while visiting new places (especially in Latin America), seeing kids get excited about natural phenomena, swimming holes, and succulents.
