Shan Kendall grew up on a farm in central Illinois. Following a long career, which included work as a microbiologist, a mother and a Waldorf teacher, she returned to “the farm” as a local food activist and teacher.
Shan has been a strong supporter of the local food movement for the past dozen years, especially since becoming a local Chapter Leader of the Weston Price Foundation. The main job of a Weston Price Chapter Leader is to locate local sources of nutrient dense foods, such as those grown by Joel Salatin on Polyface Farms and those grown locally by the farmers of the Chaffin Family Orchards, Living Lands Agrarian Network, Dinner Bell, Fowler Family Farms, River Hill, Mountain Bounty and many others.
Shan has taken it a step further by helping educate farmers and consumers and personally growing some of those foods herself: raising chickens on sprouted grains and pasture for eggs and meat, raising cows and goats for meat, milk and cheese, and growing organic fruits and vegetables.
In addition to farming and supporting local farmers, Shan teaches food preparation/nutrition classes in Nevada City. For more information about nutrient dense foods, you can visit www.westonaprice.org or email Shan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
