Temra Costa is a nationally recognized sustainable food and farming advocate.  Her recent book, Farmer Jane: Women Changing the Way We Eat is the product of the past seven years she has spent working to promote a more vibrant local food economy in California, and beyond. 

Farmer Jane features the stories of over 30 women and how they are changing our food systems for the better as farmers, educators, mothers, chefs, businesswomen, and policy wonks.  The book also explains how eaters, farms and businesses can get more involved in changing how our country eats and farms.

Temra works, cooks, gardens and writes in the East Bay of California.  She is a radio show co-host on Green 960 with her show the Queens of Green (which you can also download as a podcast).
