  • Description

    We are Maddie and Sophie! We are proud owners of our van Milk and are starting van life with our puppy Marty in the beginning of 2021. Some things about us: Maddie just finished school and Sophie is taking a break from her full-time role as a director at an environmental nonprofit. Sophie loves to cook and collage and Maddie is most happy when working outside, in a field, or making things with her hands. We both love hanging out with people we can learn from. Trying new things and being out of our comfort zone is one of the reasons we are starting this adventure. We are both passionate about sustainability and environmental issues, both of which Maddie studied at university and Sophie worked on in her job. Maddie is interested in gaining hands-on skills like carpentry and other handy skills, Sophie is down for anything. Maddie's life goal is to start a flower farm and event space where we can hold gatherings and host programs to benefit the community! Sophie's ambition is to represent a community through being a elected official...we know those futures are down the road from us so we want to have a good time in the meantime.

  • More details about your skills

    My first job was teaching ski lessons to children at Sugarbowl Resort in Norden, CA. I love to teach and work with children.
    I have experience working at a flower farm, a small urban farm, and a fruit and veggie farm. At all of these farms I helped with planting, harvesting, and small projects including installing drip irrigation.
    I also have experience working with children in my mom's kindergarten classroom where many of the children were english learners.
    I studied Economics and Environmental Studies as well as Sustainability Studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
    I worked as a DJ at the college radio station, KZSC for 4 years and have experience with many genres of music.
    I am a fast learner with a lot of motivation to learn new things and gain skills.
    Sophie can make anything vegan - and taste good too!
