aka: Chef Coco.
Sequoia Ross joined the Tricycle Gardens family after actively supporting the organization as a Healthy Corner Store Initiative volunteer. Sequoia is a classically trained chef and a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University. She is passionate about all things food and giving back to her community. Her role at Tricycle allows her to combine her love of food and people. Impacting the community positively through urban farming, food access and nutrition education are key components in “growing change” within an urban community. Sequoia’s motto is “changing eating habits, one meal at a time.” She understands that behavioral change isn’t instantaneous but if you nurture and guide, behaviors change over time. Sequoia divides her time between Tricycle Gardens, her three lovely daughters, and her vegan cookie business. She is originally from Philadelphia but she calls Richmond home.
Words to live by
“Building bridges satisfies the soul, burning bridges satisfies ego”; “Allow your work to be your legacy”.
What has been your favorite Tricycle experience?
Any time I get to spend with my Tricycle family is rewarding. Surprising Josh for his birthday, attending Isabel’s wedding, my surprise baby shower, celebrating the Taylor mens’ birthday and attending the graduation of our sweet Lindsay all warmed my heart.
What do you do when you’re not working for Tricycle?
I love attending concerts, cultural festivals, FOOD FESTIVALS, going to the beach and spending time with my four beautiful daughters.
