An SCW founder, organic farmer, artist and activist, Karen enjoys the opportunities for collaboration and community that SCW affords. Among the chorus of voices here, hers always speaks for the small-scale, hands-on solution to any problem. With her partner John, who grows organic grapes along the Jamesville reservoir, she lives out the mantra of "building the world we want to live in", one growing season at a time. Her talented hands and open heart have created moving and inspirational artwork for untold numbers of community groups working for change over the past 30 years.
