Jay Rosenberg


As a community organizer, volunteer and educator, Jay Rosenberg has been involved with sustainable agriculture projects in rural and urban settings since the early 2000s. In that time, Jay has traveled the world collaborating on farms and food gardens, including: City Farm in Chicago; a 14-acre farm and tropical food forest in Maui; and edible gardens in Miami, London, Sydney and locations throughout California.

Jay is currently the Volunteer Coordinator for the San Francisco Permaculture Guild and is actively building education and research programs focused on gardens, food and community throughout the city. Working with the amazing team at Hayes Valley Farm, the Hayes Valley Neighborhood Association, the Mayor's Office of Economic and Workforce Development and all of the members of the community is his dream come true.
