Meet The Instructor

Evelyn Rosas

Years ago I switched paths from law office to farm. I learned to love working with the soil and selling produce on a farm in Austin, TX. Since that time I've worked on various farms from Texas to California and growing in roles from apprentice to farm manager. My dedication to sustainable agriculture has led me to become an organic inspector and become an educator in this field. I'm extremely happy to return to Austin to be able to work with ACC and our area farmers to provide quality training and resources to aspiring agricultural entrepreneurs in Central Texas! Our food system needs us. We need more farmers and more folks dedicated to land stewardship, improving the farmer quality of life and our farm ties to the community.

I have a BA from the University of Chicago and a certificate in Ecological Horticulture from UC Santa Cruz CASFS Farm and Garden.
