I'm a Bay Area writer and organizer focusing on issues of sustainability and social justice. I'm particularly passionate about urban agriculture & food justice, sustainable cities, alternative economics, clean energy, and eco-justice for all. I try to focus on citizen action and positive successful projects and ideas. I have worked for nonprofits advocating for sustainable transportation and peace issues and taught environmental ethics, philosophy, and comparative religion at a college in Ohio before moving to the Bay Area. When I'm not engaged in yerba mate fueled ink-slinging, you can find me traveling, organic gardening, participating in a local demonstration or direct action, or hiking the trails. I also write for Oakland Local, Truthout, Matador Change, and Terrain Magazine. Follow me at @vanlenning and visit my blogs at Pull the Root, Travelin' Bones, and Rumi and the Cholo.
