Matthew West, Community Organizer and Farm Beginnings Coordinator.

Matthew is from South Dakota but has traveled far in his pursuit of art, local food and the environment. Including studying art at Rutgers University and working with organizers and activist fighting Fracking in Pennsylvania. Passionate about art, food, & yoga, he moved back with his young son to be closer to his family and friends, with his goal to build roots once again in his hometown of Sioux Falls. Here he spends his time creating art, growing food, and enjoying life alongside his young son.
