Lanette was born and raised in sunny southern California. She moved to northern CA for college where she studied organic agriculture policy at UC Berkeley and regenerative agriculture through the CASFS program at UC Santa Cruz. After interning at Hidden Villa from 2008 to 2010, she returned to join the HV staff in 2012 where she founded our flower operation and began co-managing field production. She is proud to be a part of the work that Hidden Villa is doing modeling, promoting and teaching diversified, small-scale regenerative agriculture. She sees sustainable farms and farmers as an essential part of the fabric of a healthy society. She works to build community by connecting people to the HV farm and educating new, aspiring farmers. Lanette loves hiking on the many beautiful Hidden Villa trails, baking with the fruits of the season and bird watching. Her favorite mission related book is The Overstory by Richard Powers.
