Milijan, originally from Yugoslavia, immigrated to the US and went to college at UC Santa Cruz where he discovered that everyone wasn't experiencing the same joy and rich flavors from food that he had grown up with.
He is assistant property manager and farm advisor for the Leichtag Foundation's Leichtag Commons farm. The private and independent foundation works to support Jewish life in North County and Israel, fight poverty and advance self-sufficiency. They grow great food via Coastal Roots Farm, host events, rent out space to growers, and connect organizations.
They primarily grow seasonal row crops but have a new food forest that relies on permaculture principles and techniques.
We look forward to seeing their food forest grow!
