Katherine Perkins serves as a CivicSpark Water Fellow with the Water Forum in Sacramento. She relishes the opportunity to give back to the valley that has nurtured her for the last four years. Katherine recently graduated from UC Davis. As a student of Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems and a member-director of her low-income cooperative housing association, Katherine learned the value of collaborative processes, mutual aid and systems thinking in building more just and sustainable communities. Before joining CivicSpark, Katherine worked as a technician on a study investigating the relationship between climate change and grape vine phenology and as a teacher and gardener at the Edible Schoolyard Berkeley.
