Staff Profile

Kendra Just

Office Manager

Kendra joined the Center for Land-based Learning as the Office Manager and Bookkeeper in August of 2018. Growing up in Vacaville, her family owned multiple retail nurseries & greenhouses in Vacaville, Dixon and Fairfield for over 40 years. Being raised in a family where their lives revolved around the family nursery business, Kendra learned a lot about horticulture at a very young age. She has years of experience in horticulture on all sides--retail, wholesale, management and growing.

Kendra has spent years working with large-scale nurseries where she cultivated her administrative skills. Before coming to Land-Based Learning, Kendra worked for Four Winds Growers in Winters for 5 years, managing 20 employees. Prior to that, she was with Heinz Nurseries in Winters for 16 years.

Kendra feels lucky to be working for an organization that gives back to the community in so many ways. She lives on a small 5-acre farm where she and her husband raise animals as a hobby, including Barbados sheep, donkeys, chickens, and two cats. Kendra has two sons, ages 29 and 19, and a 2-year old granddaughter. When not at work you can find her gardening, cooking, watching Giants baseball and spending time with her family.
