Green Festival Speakers
When not creating herb gardens out of toasters at Three Bees Nursery, Elan is a dedicated activist working to reshape traditional agriculture and the current food system into a sustainable form that is beneficial to both the environment and people. In San Francisco this translates to volunteering at incredible organizations such as Garden for the Environment and the San Francisco Urban Agriculture Alliance. Most recently, Elan helped the SFUAA organize a successful mayoral candidate forum aimed at encouraging the next mayor to support the burgeoning urban agriculture community, continue the proliferation of educational green spaces in schools, and reexamine our water usage to promote efficiency and conservation. He is also a tireless supporter of DIY crafts and has a personal mission to encourage people to rethink trash by removing objects from the waste stream and repurposing them in creative and novel ways.
