Jillian Anawaty

Community Organizer

Born and raised in Rapid City, Jillian loves the Black Hills and it was her passion for local food and community that first moved her involvement with DRA as a member. Jillian will be the new Black Hills Chapter Organizer and part-time staff person in the Rapid City Field Office. In addition to chapter campaigns and activities, she will work closely with our state-wide Farm to School Committee and also help facilitate a re-launch of the SD Online Local Foods Co-op for West River members.

Off the clock, Jillian shares her enthusiasm for a balanced and conscious life as a yoga and Pilates instructor. She’s zealous about composting and kombucha, and always willing to talk about worms and fermentation. An obsessive organic gardener, Jillian also appreciates good food, conversation and time outside soaking up the abundance nature.
