Angie Boone
Member and Development Associate

Angie Boone joined the Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Funders (SAFSF) in May of 2022 and currently serves as the Member and Development Associate. She supports overall donor stewardship along with membership engagement, renewals, and prospecting; grant tracking and submissions; and special event sponsorship.

Before joining SAFSF, Angie worked for Pinoleville Pomo Nation, a Tribe in Northern California, where she coordinated their Good Health and Wellness in Indian Country grant, focused on chronic disease prevention, traditional foods, and nutrition and gardening education. Previously, she was involved in local non-profit work focused on establishing and increasing community gardens in Mendocino and Lake Counties in Northern California to increase access to home-grown nutritious and culturally appropriate foods in low-income neighborhoods. 

Angie holds a B.A. in French and Sociology/Anthropology with a concentration in Environmental Studies from St. Olaf College. Her curiosity to engage with the land and food systems led her to work on farms and vineyards in Washington and New Zealand. She later pursued a Permaculture Design Certificate to further her understanding of growing food and stewarding the land. 

Mentors from her time farming, completing a permaculture design and eco-restoration courses and serving an Indigenous community have passed down their love for regenerative agriculture and foraged medicines, as well as their reverence for the land and commitment to striving for a harmonious relationship with nature, inspiring her to continue a path focused on food systems, land stewardship, and environmental and human health. 

Angie grew up in Richardson, Texas, and currently resides in Mendocino County, California. She is an avid hiker and is constantly craving time in the backcountry. Outside of work, she enjoys expressing creativity through cooking, food preservation, making herbal medicines, researching health and nutrition, and going on a lot of walks.
