Jennifer Knowles

Secretary

Originally from Hawai'i, Jenny first came to Kodiak in 2013 for commercial fishing. She loves this "northern Hawai'ian island" for its outdoorsy living, big-hearted people, and wild spaces. Although her background is in the maritime industry, Jenny is now a small business owner, self-employed bookkeeper, and part time crewmember. 

 

Jenny's interest in the co-op started with her love for food and has since grown into a passion for providing a healthy and affordable shopping alternative for everyone in Kodiak. She wants the co-op to be a fun, welcoming place where all of Kodiak can gather for delicious eats, education, and fellowship.

Food is important, and good fresh local food has great power for good.  Mark developed food sensitivities about 20 years ago, and he became a food fanatic due to medical necessity.  For him, in particular, junky industrial food is toxic, but he thinks wholesome food is a lot more important for everyone than many people recognize. 

 

Mark thinks one of Kodiak Harvest's role in the broader community should be to promote and educate on the value of fresh local food, and to provide a market that can connect providers with customers.

Sophie Weaver

Member

Sophie has been exploring the mountains, coves, and alpine lakes of Kodiak for 3 years. As a fisheries biologist for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, she is passionate about sustainable, nourishing foods that can be harvested right here on the island.

 

Sophie grew up on a small farm in PA and recognizes the importance of understanding where your food comes from. She wants everyone in the Kodiak community to be able to form a connection with their food and their local farmers. She is excited to be a part of the growing community support of Kodiak Harvest.

 

You can find Sophie skiing on Pyramid, paddleboarding around Crooked Island, harvesting bull kelp to make pickles, or petting any cute dog she finds on the Near Island trails.
