Reinette Senum

Foghorn At Large



In 1994 Reinette Senum would become the first woman to cross Alaska alone. It would be during this isolated winter solo trek, filmed by Reinette for National Geographic, that she would learn, of all things, the power of community. Ultimately, lessons learned along the trail would become the catalyst for Reinette's community work later in life.


For the last 18 years Reinette's focus has been on building her hometown, Nevada City, California, as a more resilient community through creative and unconventional means.  Through risk assessment, public outreach, and a daily hands-on approach, Reinette has been on the forefront of curating Nevada City towards a more sustainable and connected future. Whether as a city council member, mayor, or community activist, her community-changing projects such as the city-sanctioned sustainable vision, the organic Nevada City Farmers Market, construction of 40 portable micro-houses for the homeless, launching a county-wide TimeBank, or a fostering a test-pilot for a town square, Reinette has changed the conversation while reweaving community for a more challenging and unpredictable future.

Most recently, Reinette ran for California governor in the 2022 race with no-party affiliation, and a platform based upon the 7th Generation principle; every decision we make today should serve seven generations from now.

This is the place to learn more about Reinette Senum, her blog, and the hot topics and challenging hypothesis she takes on within her own hometown, Nevada City, California, and around the world.
