The SoA is happy to welcome two new staff members in the month of June!
In the admin suite, we were joined by Zotero Citlalcoatl, our new Program Coordinator. Zotero earned his M.S. in Public Policy at the UA . He has been working in the sustainable agricultural industry since 2010. He was a leader at the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona’s Community Food Resource Center where he helped start school gardens, ran many youth programs, and worked on many community-based food security initiatives. In 2017, Zotero started his own business to help people transform their landscapes into Sonoran Desert native food bearing plant paradises. He has worked with farmers throughout Arizona, California, Utah, Nevada, Texas, and New Mexico to help them harvest rainwater and build their soil. He is an avid outdoorsman who loves to go hiking, camping, and fishing with his family. Zotero's office is in Haury 210. Please stop in and introduce yourself and say hello when you get a chance.
