BIOGRAPHY:

Alice Caruthers lived a life on the rough side for a long time before she realized that she didn't want to continue on a path of where she was afraid of two things: jail or death. Alice realized that she didn't want to follow what other people were doing and wanted to start making her own decisions. Her troubled path is what led her to help and educate youth on living better, healthier lives. Alice is now the executive director at Alemany Farm, a farm that provides organic produce to low-income families living in the San Francisco, Calif., area. There, Alice runs the farm's youth development programs such as leadership, conflict resolution, and peer pressure that help teens make better decisions.
