Peaches Patties - Shani Jones is the owner and chef of Peaches Patties, one of San Francisco’s few Caribbean food outfits. In her youth, cultural collaboration in the kitchen resulted in eclectic dinners fusing Jamaican and Creole cuisines. This spurred Shani’s love of bold spices and culturally rooted recipes, and inspired her to launch her business.
Green Thumb Organics Farms - Growing up in Salinas, Rudy Jimenez was inspired by his father, who had been working on a conventional farm for 30 years. He turned the wealth of experience from his dad and his entrepreneurship skills, as well as his passion for organic farming and founded his farm in 2015.
Bluma Farm - Joanna Letz is the founder, farmer and floral designer of Bluma Farm in the Sunol AgPark, just 30 miles south of her native Berkeley. At Bluma’s 2-acre plot, she grows as many as 50 varieties of flowers ranging from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
Boug Cali - Chef Tiffany Carter, chief visionary behind Boug Cali, started her culinary career selling plates at her uncle’s church. Encouraged by success, she decided to go to culinary school; Tiffany attended Le Cordon Bleu and in 2017, her Creole food business was born with a Bayview pop-up and Chase Center concession kiosk.
