Jadda started working with Grow Some Good (GSG) in 2017 as a Garden Coordinator at Kihei Elementary. During this time she became aware of the impact that GSG’s programming was creating in the lives of her students: Inspiring them to care for the environment, fostering a love of vegetables (even the green ones), learning about where their food comes from, and obtaining a healthier perspective on life. In February 2020, Jadda was offered a position working in development for the organization.
Jadda was raised on a farm in Northern California, where her love for the natural world sprouted and grew into a deep-seated desire to protect the environment and cultivate community-supported, sustainable food systems. She holds a B.S. in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems, an M.S. in Environmental Studies, and is currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Sustainability Education.
