Julia Sendor, Executive Director
Julia grew up here in Orange County, NC. Now in her eighth year of full-time farming, Julia is committed to creating a place where people and land can thrive together. This commitment is grounded in the perspectives and stories learned from previous work as a newspaper reporter, community organizer, weaving association consultant, and student of Environmental Studies — as well from family and community members whose own lives have centered around storytelling, story-listening, land-loving, and truth-seeking. Julia lives in Hillsborough, NC, with her husband Andrew.
