Sage Austin studied Environmental Design and Botany at Texas A&M University, and has over two decades of experience as an environmental educator, nature festival organizer, and executive director of an environmental non-profit. As a botanist, she worked for the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, where she helped launch the Native Plant Information Network, did public speaking, and wrote for a national audience. She served for many years as Executive Director of the Texas Hill Country River Region, promoting nature tourism and environmental conservation. While there, she organized an annual week-long national nature festival and helped pass state legislation on river protection. An avid seed saver and life-long gardener, she's currently a full-time farmer focusing on developing drought and heat tolerant vegetables on five acres in the desert southwest.
Note, she's in the process of joining and listing seeds, but her place was hit by a Tornado...so It may take her a bit to get the rest done.
