Brittani grew up in Los Angeles, where she developed a strong passion for learning, engaging with plants, and the wonderful outdoors. She is currently a third year student at UC Berkeley, studying environmental science and food systems. She has a passion for soil science and agriculture with dreams of helping to transform our current global food system to one that focuses more on using less inputs and more natural organic methods through permaculture. When she's not studying, she loves to ride her bike, garden, and travel with close friends.
Food: It’s one of the most basic essential needs that every human being requires. According to a report by the Center for Food Safety and Save Our Seeds organization, Monsanto, DuPont, and Syngenta dominate 53 percent of our worldwide seed economy (2013). That means that just three corporations control over half of our global food production system. Today, many of us stuff food in our mouths without thinking twice about the production process that went into it.
