Josh Halsey Story

@ VOL 23 ON MAR 16, 2018

His background includes Environmental Biology from an undergraduate program at UC Santa Cruz, where he co-managed a student-run pottery co-op and became certified in Holistic Health. These interests in active production eventually led to a Master’s in Soil Microbiology that he obtained while living in Brazil.
