Dani and her partner, David, are devoted to sustainability and employ sustainable, regenerative and natural farming techniques which produces food chemical free. Their mission is to give back to the Earth while providing Floridians with fresh, local food and herbs, and encourage lifestyles that are clean and green.

Dani is also a certified yoga teacher, a musician, and she disappointed her college professors when she declined a full scholarship to pursue a masters in women’s studies. While she loves learning and evolving, should couldn’t deny what has long lived in her heart: the desire to meaningful connect with Earth.

She turned this passion into growing sustainable food as a way to connect local communities with farm fresh, naturally grown produce. At the age of 24, Dani started her first Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program to grow healthy food for the community of Delray Beach and beyond. Lucky for us, WiseTribers can enjoy a membership to the Bear Necessities Farm CSA at a discount by signing up here and using the code: WiseTribe.

Dani will continue sharing her passion for sustainable farming and sustainable living as a monthly blogger for WiseTribe. Next month, she will interview one of Bear Necessities our CSA Members who, as a mother of two children, is motivated to empower herself and family by knowing exactly where their food is coming from and who is producing it.
