Member Spotlight: Brenna Davis, CEO of Organically Grown Company
OSC: Where is your hometown?
BD: Portland, OR
OSC: What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
BD: I am an open book, so it’s hard to say. Generally, I think most people don’t realize that in addition to being a scientist by training, I am also a creative person. I am a writer and musician. I was a classically trained violinist for years, and now am learning the electric guitar.
OSC: What is it about the mission of your company that really ignites you?
BD: Organically Grown Company’s mission is to promote and inspire the growth of the organic agriculture movement. Organic food is better for health, the planet, workers and farmers. I am passionate about the health and wellbeing of current and future generations. Organic is the answer!
OSC: What’s a favorite childhood memory of food that you have?
BD: My father was born on a farm and taught me how to grow things. I loved growing herbs, eating the corn from our garden and picking cherries from our backyard tree.
BD: Scientists are inherently conservative. The impacts of climate change may be much more serious than we currently anticipate. I think about future generations and the immense challenge it will be to adapt to the future state. We need to teach kids how to be nimble, flexible and adaptable now to help their odds in the future. It’s one way we can show love to humanity’s future.
