Jovan Sage is the creator, herbalist & wellness coach behind Sage’s Larder and resident food alchemist and owner at The Farmer & The Larder.
As a little kid working in her grandfather’s shop at the City Market, Jovan got to explore the different food stalls, food trucks and farmers stands. She got to touch, see and taste food from all over the world and from local farms. It was there that she discovered the intoxicating allure of international spices – curries, fenugreek, cumin, paprika, peppers, ginger & turmeric. This foundation has shaped her palate, spice and herbalist cabinet.
As an event organizer and facilitator, she has coordinated conferences, events and workshops for political organizing, public policy, food and health education. She believes in bringing people together through the common language of food, organizing locally, and participating in international and national advocacy.
Before moving to Georgia in 2014, she lived and worked in New York City focusing on social justice, sustainability, food and agriculture -- including working as a cafe and food retail consultant and Engagement Director for Slow Food USA.
