About Bethany

Bethany moved to Kansas City for an AmeriCorps position working with Refugee farmers, which taught her a lot about growing/cooking vegetables, the beauty of diversity, and how to stay in one place for multiple years. When she’s not working, Bethany enjoys traveling, reading, growing food, cooking, ceramics, and coffee. She dreams to one day be a stellar graphic design artist.
