Anna Pierce-Slive Bio
Anna was deeply changed by working the earth almost a decade ago and hasn’t stopped since. She has gotten her hands dirty at Esalen Institute’s Farm & Garden, at the University of California at Santa Cruz’s Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems and is currently the farmer for Haley House at the Thornton Street Farm in Roxbury. Anna loves growing colorful, beautiful, nutrient-dense food for the people while building the world’s most precious resource – soil. Her work blends a passion for plants with the urgency for social change and forging resilient relationships between people and the land.
