IOR's Global Gardens crew in Boise is excited to welcome two new faces to the team:
Jordan Unger, Operations Assistant
Jordan was born and raised in Boise and recently moved back after spending most of the last decade living out of state. He received his master’s degree in journalism from the University of Montana, where he gained a deep appreciation for writing and telling the stories of marginalized groups of people. Jordan has worked in outdoor education, on small vegetable farms, and as a journalist. In his new role with Global Gardens, he's particularly excited about the community-building aspect inherent in farming. Outside of work, Jordan enjoys reading, discovering new international music and any type of aquatic situation.
David Goff, Farm Assistant
David is a passionate farmer from Boise who is dedicated to sustainable and organic farming practices that prioritize the health of the soil and the environment. David's deep love and respect for the land inspired him to pursue his dream of regenerative agriculture where he focuses on restoring soil health, reducing waste, and creating a sustainable future for generations to come. He firmly believes that the way we treat the land has a direct impact on the environment including soil health, water quality, and food nutrition. He is also a proud owner of a young yellow Labrador named Babe who shares his love for the farm.
