Brianna Schaefer grew up in southern California where she spent a tremendous amount of time playing in the great outdoors. Looking for broader experience and understanding, Brianna migrated up to San Francisco for college where she majored in Environmental Studies and Art. While she aspires to keep her hands in the dirt, she has always felt fortunate to be involved in work that combines her passion for plants, people and positive solutions. Brianna has spent the majority of her career working and volunteering for non-profits and is a firm believer in the grandness of people power. Having spent over a decade in the Presidio of San Francisco, growing native plants for restoration of park lands, she is thrilled to have the opportunity to grow community closer to home. She resides in Petaluma, with her husband and son, where she enjoys growing food, family bike rides and a good cup of tea.
