Becca Nelson
Sustainable Food Systems Program Manager

For the last six years Becca worked around the South Bay in sustainable agriculture and education. She's passionate about the connection between the land, sustainability, and community. Becca has worked as a garden teacher, an animal care manager, a farmhand, a forest school teacher, and a volunteer coordinator. She started at Santa Clara in March 2022 and is thrilled to be managing the Forge Garden, educating about sustainable food production, and working with students. As a kid she frequently came to the SCU campus for different events and is happy she found her way back to the Santa Clara campus as the Sustainable Food Systems Program Manager.
