Jacquelyn N. Zita

Jacquelyn N. Zita is professor emerita from University of Minnesota and currently works for the Women's Environmental Institute (WEI) as Farm Manager for WEI's Amador Hill Farm and Orchard, Director of Education for WEI's Down to Earth: Sustainability and Justice Education Program, and Coordinator for WEI's North Circle Project. She has been working with WEI on the North Circle Project from its inception as a wild idea 10 years ago to its moderately successful implementation over the past three years. WEI added a 2019 WEI theme to this project -- farming for a liveable planet -- as a new local strategy to bring more intentional and environmentally-minded consumers to our online platform to build support for a self-sustaining climate-ready regional food system.
