US (CA): Sunray Farm of Sonoma marks third year

Maggie La Rochelle is helping to make magic happen on an acre just outside of Sonoma. She’s half of the couple behind the climate-resilient, ecologically-geared Sunray Farm, a labor of love for La Rochelle and her husband, Matt Gunn, that is now entering its third year.

For La Rochelle, who grew up in Napa and knew nothing about gardening or farming at the time, it's also a reflection of her commitment to holistic community development and a good work-life balance.

She first got the opportunity to learn about her new trade at the UC Davis Student Farm. She first went onto the farm while doing research, but she was inspired by what she saw, and it led to a love of horticulture and sustainable ag.

“I observed just how powerful it was for students to be learning to garden and farm, including myself,” she said. La Rochelle and Gunn have a 5-and-a-half-year- old boy named Jules. When they got the opportunity to create Sunray Farm, they knew it was the right opportunity for their small family.
