With the theme of “Living Creatively on the East End,” 10 members of the community are invited to present 20 slides at 20 seconds each, yielding six minutes and 40 seconds per presenter. This is a great opportunity to establish new relationships, learn about local resources, and hear from the many artists, writers, musicians, gardeners, farmers, baymen, winemakers, chefs, designers, architects, and other creative professionals who comprise our region.
Born in Pasadena, CA, and raised in San Antonio, TX, Katie graduated from the University of Southern California with a BA in International Relations. She worked for 5 years in foreign policy think tanks including the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. Not totally convinced that her life-long career track in diplomacy and foreign service was a recipe for happiness, she made a radical career shift into studying the state of domestic food production and experienced a “food awakening” that inspired her to get her hands dirty, work with the soil, and learn to grow food. Katie apprenticed for a season at Quail Hill Farm and the following year, along with her fellow apprentice Amanda Merrow, started Amber Waves Farm. Five seasons later, she continues to grow food and loves working with the land. She is part of the national movement of young people committed to revitalizing America’s food system by reconnecting people to the land and mentoring new organic farmers. She has been featured on the Food Network, ABC’s The Chew, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and numerous local and regional publications for her work at Amber Waves Farm.
