My background is in communications. I work in the local food movement promoting community supported agriculture for the FairShare CSA Coalition in Madison, Wisc., a coalition of 50 small, organic, family-owned farms. My husband, Doug Renk, works in the renewable energy field for Bioferm Energy Systems, also in Madison. We are both passionate about sustainability and community, and love nature and the outdoors. Doug is into biking, and I enjoy art and upcycling. Our kids are grown; we are on a grand adventure working our hearts out for what we believe in and living minimally so that we can afford "rich" experiences.
