In 2008, Jenna was a WWOOFer (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) at Joel and Richard’s farm on Mfangano for six months. Here, connecting with the people and finding deeper purpose in travel, the emerging OHR offered her an opportunity to stay connected to the community in a more dynamic way.
Jenna graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison with a degree in interior design, but with experience in agroecology. She has always been torn between the arts and sciences.
Her heart is in the beautiful folk of Mfangano and the place they reside.She serves on the OHR board as well as in the Agriculture and Nutrition Department. Though she says, we all work together, so we are all kind of part of everything.
“The Navajo put a mistake in everything they make because no one but the higher spirits are perfect.”
