Meet Mackensie Leek
Nature lover. Plant lover. Farmer.
My name is Mackensie Leek. I was fortunate to grow up here in Monterey on the California Coast. Nature has always been a big part of my life and a huge inspiration for me. Growing up in a family that loves to be outdoors allowed me to experience everything this area offers from the ocean to the mountains. Being so connected to nature influenced me to become aware of the food nourishing my body and where it came from. After experimenting with growing vegetables in my yard I heard about an Organic Farming class through Hartnell College in Salinas that was hands on. With an interest in expanding my knowledge I decided to give it a go and learn more about my food and how to grow food in harmony with the earth. The first week in I was hooked. It was beautiful planting a tiny seed and see it grow into a bountiful harvest. Safe, pure food that is fresh and delicious. I love getting my hands in the dirt, eating local, and eating fresh.
