Renee Fourie

Greetings everyone!

My name is Renee and I am the Outreach and Education Coordinator with RMSA. Welcome to Grain School Online!

I reside in the North American Southwest in the lands of the Tohono O’odham and Hohokam peoples (Arizona), where my livelihood is supported by the canal system originally developed by the Hohokam without which myself, family, friends, neighbors, and other living creatures would have a difficult time surviving. I am a daughter of European and Southeast Asian immigrants, an explorer, athlete, plant and animal lover, dancer, gardener, and a seed saver. I look forward to becoming a grain grower.

Here is a photo of my pride and joy last season: dill taller than me. You will see some bolting romaine, broccoli, and Nasturtium flowers in the background. Happy to connect with you all this course.
