Aliesje holds a Master’s Degree in Ecology & Agriculture Education and was the Founding Director of the Earth Art & Agriculture Project (or Earth Art Ag) a garden education a non-profit that was folded into GROW Portland in 2018.  Aliesje’s first day will be March 25th – just in time for the spring field trip season. Drop Aliesje a note and welcome her to the Sauvie Island Center. Better yet, join us for an event on the farm this spring or summer and introduce yourself in person!
