Daniel Bleakney-Formby arrived to Petaluma and instantly found “home” in May 2016. Making his way to the Bay Area, settling in Napa in 2012 from Phoenix, AZ finding his “people” became a top priority. It didn’t take Dan long to find community in Petaluma while attending a Daily Acts Rain harvest workshop, while on a second date with Howard Formby.
Dan is a graduate of Scottsdale Leadership program, Class of 18′ and served in a board of directors role of that organization for four years that included time on the development committee, the selection committee, as well as, co-chairing the 20th anniversary celebration.
His passion for food and farming has placed him in the organic produce and grocery business and will be opening a retail store in downtown early 2018
