About the Farmers

Hope Sippola & Shayne Zurilgen


Hope is originally from the great state of Michigan and worked as the Garden Coordinator at the Harper School Harvest Project in Davis. Shayne is originally from Stockton and worked with the Boggs Tract Community Farm while also teaching middle school science. Both are graduates of the California Farm Academy (Center for Land-Based Learning). They have been farming together since 2015.


Their mission is to grow the highest quality food using sustainable practices, deliver hands-on, ag-based educational experiences, and develop community where they farm. They believe that urban farms are powerful agents of change for the environment, the food system and the cities they service.
