Marisa grew up in Switzerland where, as a child, she always wanted to live on a farm like her parents and grandparents did. Feeling called by a land and people to learn, work, grow, and share, is what brought Marisa to O.U.R. in the summer of 2008. Marisa�s dedication to living a healthy life full of fresh beautiful food, in an environment where her children can grow and learn in a healthy, safe, and nurturing way, and making a positive change in the world is what makes her stay.

Marisaʼs cooking draws on the traditions of her grandmother, the inspiration of the many visitors to O.U.R. ECOVILLAGE and the beauty of the produce from O.U.R. garden.



This evening and all aspects of the event are set up as a time to honor all those who have come through OUR hub over this past season. We are well over the 10K number of incredible people who have some type of connection and request which we all try and fulfill through OUR resources and programming.
