Ellee Igoe

Co-owner, Solidarity Farm

Ellee Igoe is the co-owner of Solidarity Farm in Pauma Valley, California and a co-founder of Foodshed Small Farm Distro and Resource Hub. Her farm received one of the first CDFA Healthy Soils grants to help launch a holistic carbon sink demonstration project which is now being scaled up in collaboration with Zero Foodprint.

Before her move into commercial farming, Ellee served as a National Technical Advisor for Food and Agriculture at the International Rescue Committee and did a stint at Wholesome Wave Foundation where she helped scale up the Gus-NIP program and troubleshoot the first Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program. She has a MA in Planning and Public Policy, but that didn’t adequately prepare her to homeschool three kids while addressing food insecurity during a global pandemic.
