Lauren Russell

Lauren is currently attending the University of Saskatchewan where she is pursuing an International Studies degree. She plans on studying naturopathy following the completion of her undergrad. Lauren believes in holistic and natural living. She sees fermenting in community as a means to engage meaningfully with food activism. She desires to inspire a community of collaboration and change where things such as composting worms, local food production, fermentation, and seed saving, become regular and accepted practices. Lauren’s passions are not limited to food sovereignty. Her rhythm has empowered her to join a Saskatoon drumming circle. Lauren’s nimble fingers can stitch a wicked dish cloth and you can often find her volunteering countless hours at the Open Door society and community gardens. All in all she’s a pretty nifty gal.
