Miles Sarvis-Wilburn (he/him) joined LandPaths in 2021 to be a part of the Growing Community with Nature initiative as a Facilities/Stewardship Specialist. He has years of stewardship experience and keeps his tools clean and organized, ready for whatever the task may be.
Born and raised in San Francisco, Miles has lived in Sonoma County since 2008 following his graduation from Kalamazoo College in Michigan where he received a B.A. in Political Science and a minor in Philosophy. He also holds an M.A. in Critical Theory and Creative Research from Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon.
In 2017, Miles began working in stewardship, preservation, and ecology, and spent two years developing programs with the Sonoma County Beekeepers Association. His desire to spend more time on the land brought him to LandPaths where he hopes to continue his studies and deepen his connection with his community.
Miles is the co-founder of Mask Sonoma, an all-volunteer mutual aid group that distributes masks in times of respiratory health crises, and has successfully supported his community through three disaster wildfire seasons and one pandemic. When not working or handing out masks, he writes about bees and beekeeping, makes fresh pasta to feed his friends, and continues to navigate this world, building a life with his incredible wife and partner.
