Tayler is a passionate Arizona State University graduate with a BS in Sustainability. Interested in people’s relationships with the environment and the food they eat, she has done extensive research on food systems, including the effects of industrial as well as local food systems on consumer health and well-being, environmental quality, local economies, and equity at all stages of production and consumption. She is a self-proclaimed “real foodie,” taking a leading role in activism on her college campus to spread education and awareness about food. In the summer of 2013, she spent two months on a permaculture farm in Nepal and conducted research on conservation farming. Tayler is currently the editor of two newsletters: Urban Farm Lifestyle and The Permaculture Life. She intends to use these as a medium for sharing knowledge and generating interest in urban farming and sustainability. Tayler can be reached at Tayler@urbanfarm.org
