Andrea Marvin is a freelance writer based in far Northern California with over two decades of writing and media production experience. Her work focuses on sustainable living, environmental topics, and healthy food systems. She is passionate about spreading awareness about informative subjects and helping people live their best lives. Andrea has always been curious about gardening and the grow your own food movement, so naturally, informing people about different gardening and agricultural methodologies became part of her work. She has been involved in grant-based projects focused on creating local food systems, expanding community garden initiatives, and native plant restoration along creeks and river systems. Prior to freelancing, Andrea was a reporter for over a decade and worked at television stations across the country in locations such as California, New York, South Florida, and Illinois.
