Diana La Riva

Lead Program Staff


qvnan@jlc.bet Diana grew up in Orange County frequenting the beach and tide pools year round and camping in the sequoias each summer. She studied Environmental Plant Science, Agronomy, Natural Resources and Italian at Purdue University. By traveling and exploring other lands and cultures, she expands her curiosity and understanding of various people and places and their connections to our natural world. She feels a strong connection to what we eat and our food systems, learning through small farm experiences and teaching in school gardens. She shares her passions and curiosity with our youth through WYP, nannying and everyday interactions. Diana can be compared to a solar powered rainbow maker: she is energized by being outside, her mind spins scientifically and she spreads rainbows everywhere she goes.
