86: Brandi DeCarli on Farm from a Box
Brandi is the Founding Partner of Farm from a Box, an off-grid, modularly designed farm system that provides communities with the tools they need to grow their own food locally and earn an income. Previously, Brandi was the Managing Partner of Human.kind Philanthropic Advisory Company, a consulting firm that created custom giving strategies to foster a greater level of donor engagement, all built around collaboration, transparency, and impact. There she worked to develop cross-sector partnerships with nonprofits, private sector, governments, and philanthropic organizations to help elevate the effectiveness and impact of projects. A collaborator at heart, she specializes in strategic planning, design strategy, and business development.
Brandi’s highly recommended books:
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
The Market Gardener: A Successful Grower’s Handbook for Small-scale Organic Farming by Jean-Martin Fortier
Her advice to listeners: “Hold onto whatever your dreams are and DO NOT give up until you get there! There are going to be all of those ups and downs but believe in them, feed them, cherish them, and inevitably they do end up coming true…if we all collectively in the world feed and fuel our dreams, imagine what that world will look like.”
