Kathleen Yetman Executive Director
Kathleen was born and raised in Prescott, where she discovered the joy of gardening in her grandmother’s backyard. Some of her fondest childhood memories are of helping harvest sugar snap peas and eating raspberries right off the bush. It’s important that she grew up not only knowing where her food came from, but also the individuals who so lovingly cultivated it. This experience led her to become involved in the food movement and continues to inspire her to share the joy and wonder of gardening. Kathleen served in the inaugural class of FoodCorps service members on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation teaching gardening and nutrition to elementary students in the isolated community of Cibecue. She was a FoodCorps Fellow for the following two years, growing the non-profit’s programming in Arizona and supporting service members across the state.

Growing up in Los Angeles, JB was a city boy–raised on convenience, rarely considering how healthy or unhealthy food was. His mother and grandmother taught him how to cook using taste and smell. His grandmother had a garden and made everything from scratch, instilling in him a love of cooking. JB hadn’t been to a farmers market until he moved to Gilbert. After visiting the market there and others while traveling, he began to recognize the quality of real food. He began researching food systems and growing practices and changed the way he shopped. JB moved to Arizona in 2007 to attend ASU, where he received a degree in sociology in 2011.
