Farmer, Oya Organics

Marsha’s parents immigrated to the United States as young adults, and she is a first generation farmer in this country. She studied Agroecology and Rural Development at UC Berkeley, and spent time as an exchange student in Brazil accompanying the Landless Workers Movement. After attending the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems apprenticeship at UC Santa Cruz, she served as an AmeriCorps volunteer doing food justice work in Silicon Valley and attended the Small Farm Education Program at ALBA. She started her own business, Oya Organics, on one acre of subleased land in Hollister, and now farms mixed vegetables on 20 acres near Hollister.
