Episode 221. Meet NCAT: Katherine Favor says agroforestry can plant the seeds of sustainability
In this episode of Voices from the Field, NCAT Sustainable Agriculture Specialist Omar Rodriguez introduces Katherine Favor, NCAT’s newest specialist at its Western Regional Office in Davis, California.
Katherine is a self-identified agroforestry nerd, perennial plant enthusiast, wine farmer, and yerba maté lover. She has worked on, designed, consulted for, and managed regenerative agriculture systems for more than 10 years. Her love of viticulture and agroforestry took her from Southern California to Montana, Paraguay, and Argentina before she finally ended up in Northern California at NCAT.
She is passionate about the intersection of natural resources conservation, food security, and community well-being, and she has specialized experience in agroforestry and regenerative viticulture. When she’s not digging her hands in the dirt, you can find her hiking, floating in the ocean, painting, or fermenting something.
