SJ SELDIN (THEY/THEM)
Steward in Residence
SJ Seldin is co-founder and board chair of Jewish Farmer Network, a farmer-founded nonprofit that connects Jewish agrarians to community, education, and resources at the intersections of Judaism and agriculture. Jewish Farmer Network believes that modern Jewish farmers are a powerful force for mobilizing Jewish wisdom to build a more just and regenerative food system for all.
In between adventures into the woods and waterways, SJ studied socio-economic injustice at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Since graduating from UNC in 2014, they have been growing organic produce for donation at educational farms and community gardens and consulting with organic businesses and community agriculture non-profits. SJ believes that Jewish agricultural wisdom offers modern farmers and stewards compelling questions, tools, and technologies for creating more just and regenerative communities for all.
