May 26, 2016 |  by  |  News

Dana SmallDana is a longtime supporter of the Montavilla Farmers Market and has been a Montavilla resident since 2007 where she maintains her own organic garden with beautiful vertical pumpkins.

Originally from the agriculturally rich Central Valley of California, some of Dana’s earliest memories involve picking and eating under-ripe apricots and running for dear life from her babysitter’s rooster. Dana has experienced first-hand the importance of supporting small farms through her longstanding work in the social services field. Here, she has served food insecure Oregonians and campaigned for food justice for over a decade. In addition to her various volunteering and board experience, Dana is a founding member of Portland’s roller derby league, the Rose City Rollers, where she was on the All-Star travel team and coached the Rosebuds youth league.

Dana enjoys nature and doing just about anything tactile: dance, playing sports, creating art, and exploring the outdoors with her family. Dana aspires to always try new things and to become a master gardener. Dana loves the farmers market and gardening so much that she sometimes wets her PLANTS. She looks forward to meeting you at the market!
