Executive Editor, Landscape Architecture
Kimberly Crawford graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a B.S. in Landscape Architecture, focusing her studies on edible and ecological landscape design. During her time at UC Berkeley, she contributed research on urban agriculture to Professor John Smith's book on city farming. Kimberly went on to earn an M.S. in Agroecology from the University of California, Santa Cruz, where her thesis research explored integrated crop-livestock systems.
With over 15 years of experience working on organic farms and developing farm-to-table initiatives, Kimberly is an expert in local food systems, regenerative agriculture, and agroecology. As both a landscape architect and agroecologist, she brings a holistic perspective to her work promoting context-specific, ecologically-sound food production systems.
In addition to running her website farmfoodfamily.com, a site dedicated to promoting sustainable agriculture, healthy eating, and environmentally-conscious living, Kimberly is the author of several books on seasonal eating and cooking. Her writing has also been published in Edible Communities, Modern Farmer, and Permaculture magazines. When she's not writing or working on the website, you'll find Kimberly getting her hands dirty on one of the educational farms she collaborates with, consulting on regional food policy issues, or teaching workshops on topics like seasonal eating and homesteading skills.
