“Beetroot” Brittany

“Beetroot” Brittany

Community Food Leader
What I enjoy from this work is the sense of accomplishment I get from knowing I can help other people and provide them with important things whether that be food or information. I like teaching new people about the things I do and have learned from my job here at the farm and hope that they take it home with them and use it themselves and even just to see someone smile. I enjoy it most when families come out to the farm with their kids and get to experience how amazing it is to grow and harvest their own food.”
