Kena leads the educational programs at Ollin Farms, with twelve years of experience sharing her passions for farming, food, science, cooking, and the Spanish language through her fun and engaging on-farm classes. Her teaching philosophy is that kids learn best when they are physically active and in a safe environment, and this focus on interactive and fun learning permeates our curriculum for school field trips and youth summer classes.
