Heather and Travis live on a double-lot in central Seattle that they named 41 Legs Urban Farm. They have grown food and raised animals there since 2006 (including Babette the pig, pictured in photo). They are dedicated to building community through regular Farm Dinners at their home.  Both had long careers in restaurants. In addition to being the lead Chef at CAGJ’s annual SLEE Dinner, Travis recently created Loki Fish Co.'s Kitchen, cooking wild salmon at farmers markets. To support her organizing, Heather worked front of the house for twenty years in many well-known restaurants in Seattle, including Maximilien in the Market, The Pink Door, The Virgina Inn and The Hi-Spot Cafe.


Eric is Executive Director of Food First, celebrating 40 years of food activism this year. Eric has long been at the forefront of the food justice movement.  In addition to being an accomplished researcher and author, he has been involved in many organizing efforts, and was one of the participants in CAGJ's Africa-US Food Sovereignty Strategy Summit in October 2014. On October 27 this Fall, CAGJ is hosting his talk at the UW, entitled “Climate, Food and Race: Challenges for the Food Movement”.
Eric is a firm believer in the power of social movements to be the catalysts for transformative change.  In his own words, “Successful social movements are formed by integrating activism with livelihoods. These integrated movements create the deep sustained social pressure that produces political will—the key to changing the financial, governmental and market structures that presently work against sustainability.”
