As president of the non-profit organization SAGE (Sustainable Agriculture Education), Sibella Kraus has worked to foster urban-rural linkages through the development of urban-edge Ag Parks and the production of agricultural resource assessments for regional planning efforts. A vibrant nexus of organic farm, education center and nature preserve, SAGE's Sunol Ag Park provides beginning and immigrant farmers with land access and urban dwellers with a connection to their food. Sibella has long called upon cities to embrace the farms at their borders -- having founded the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA) that gave rise to San Francisco's iconic Ferry Plaza Farmers' Market in 1992; and is now spearheading another game-changing project to create an agriculture and conservation resource area within the 7,400-acre Coyote Valley, just south of San Jose. Isabella's advocacy has been a driving force in the Bay Area food movement for decade -- as she's determined to preserve the invaluable connections between farmer and consumer, urban hub and working landscape.
