Rachel Kathleen Pringle

Rachel Kathleen Pringle is programs manager for the San Francisco Green Schoolyard Alliance, an advocacy and support organization for school gardens and green schoolyards in San Francisco. She is also the urban school garden liaison for Occidental Arts & Ecology Center’s school garden teacher training program in Sonoma County, California.

Since moving to California in 2002, Rachel has worked in the environmental education field. Her passion for environmental and conservation education led her to work with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, bringing students from the city out to experience their national parks.

Rachel taught in a public school garden for four years, integrating the curriculum into the outdoor classroom and planning community events.

She raised cattle and kept a garden while growing up on a small farm in rural Maine, and earned her master's degree in conservation biology from the University of Pennsylvania in 2001.
