Farm Manager, Brooklyn Navy Yard Farm

Michelle Cashen, or “Cashew,” as she is known fondly around the farm, took the reigns as Farm Manager of the Brooklyn Navy Yard rooftop in Spring of 2016, after spending several seasons farming both our rooftops, working events, and slingin’ veg at our market tables. In 2015, Cashen also Co-Produced NYC Honey Week, and launched the Rockaway Food Co-op in her native community of Rockaway Beach, Queens. When she's not at the farm, Cashen can be found surfing, or dominating the court as small forward on her YMCA basketball team, “That Ain’t Right.”
