Julie was born and raised in California. After working as an actor and arts administrator, and starting a private progressive preschool in Seattle, she earned her Master’s in Environmental Education. Subsequently she taught interdisciplinary environmental education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels for the Audubon Expedition Institute at Lesley University, challenging students to look beyond surface conflicts between environmentalism and agriculture, and to see the common values and goals. In 2001, after more than a decade living with the expedition, Julie joined George Whitten at San Juan Ranch, where she co-created the Quivira Coalition’s New Agrarian Program with Quivira staff. She has been a NAP mentor for 11 years, and as NAP mentor coordinator, she is currently responsible for mentor training and support.

LEASING YOUR FUTURE

MONDAY OCTOBER 26TH AND THURSDAY NOVEMBER 5TH  |   5:00 – 7:00 PM MT   |   $10

A lease, as defined in the dictionary, is a contract by which one party conveys land, property, services, et cetera to a second party for a specified time, usually in return for a periodic payment. There is a great deal of room for innovative thinking in that definition, which is why understanding leasing is so important to a young person who may not own land, livestock, or equipment for starting a business. In this workshop, learn how to take the grazing skills you have and combine them with a leasing opportunity. During the first session, the presenters will share what makes for a win-win grazing relationship and how a lease provides clarity and structure for this. During the second session, participants will have an opportunity to work through sample leases, iron out details, and ask lots of questions. This workshop is geared towards beginning or aspiring ranchers who are in the first 10 years of their career.
