Emunah Hauser - Project Associate
Emunah grew up flinging kitchen waste into the compost pit behind her family's earth coupled, energy efficient green home in Redding, California, picking tomatoes from greywater-fed tomato plants, and taking lots of super-hot, sun-heated water for granted. As a marketing advisor for Berkeley’s Saul's Restaurant and Delicatessen, she became passionate about promoting the significance of the restaurant’s socially and environmentally responsible food suppliers. She is excited about ever-evolving definitions of sustainability and the challenges of green PR. Emunah holds a B.A. in Rhetoric from UC Berkeley. Her professional background includes media monitoring, debate instruction, policy research, marketing – and vaudeville, western swing and old-time fiddle/vocal performance and instruction.
