Adam Glasser is a senior at the University of Denver, majoring in journalism, with a minor in anthropology. Originally from the suburbs of Washington D.C., he grew up in a family that placed strong emphasis on dining together, and sustainability. He hopes to use his degree to advocate for social justice, and tackle some of the problems facing his community. Whether avoiding avalanches in the Colorado backcountry, or advocating for a sustainable lifestyle, he is sure to be pursuing one of his passions.

IMG_0664Julia Bertram is originally from Santa Fe, New Mexico and moved to Colorado to attend the University of Denver. She graduated Cum Laude in June 2016 with a degree in Business Administration with a focus in Real Estate and a minor in Sustainability.  After working in apartment development for the summer post graduation, Julia decided to shift her focus towards a career in food sustainability. Her interest in food was first sparked after volunteering for the Santa Fe Farmer’s Market after high school. Her passion for local and sustainable food has only grown, which has led her to an internship with Slow Food.
