Meet Masha Brumer
Masha is one of this season's Vegetable Apprentices! She is originally from Los Angeles, CA and had zero exposure to food production or farming while growing up in the city.
After completing her BA in Psychology at CU Boulder, a health crisis pushed her to search for nutrient-dense sources of food to help her heal. The healing processes pushed her to learn about the agricultural industry which opened her eyes to the damage that conventional agriculture brings to both human and environmental health. This inspired her to start volunteering on small organic farms to learn the basics of soil health (and to expose herself to some good bacteria!). After completing an internship at a regenerative farm in SW Georgia, she knew that farming was the path for her. She feels a deep responsibility for helping to provide high quality food for the community and is excited to learn more on how to do so at Rock Bottom Ranch!
When she's not farming, you can find her Bouldering, cooking, reading or enjoying the Colorado sunshine.
