Farm Manager, Flagship Farm
Liz grew-up in Vermont, managing her very own strawberry patch alongside her mother while she tended her gardens. She moved to NYC in 2003 to study photography and it wasn’t long before she was homesick for knelling in the dirt. After traveling to Vancouver Island to photograph the temperate rainforests, she found herself studying urban permaculture design and biodynamic farming.
Liz then moved on to become a farm manager at the Youth Farm in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. At the Youth Farm Liz enjoyed teaching kids in the community and adults how to grow sustainably and dug her heels into food justice advocacy. Liz has now taken her love of growing to the roof, managing the Brooklyn Grange in Long Island City. When Liz is not snacking on Sun Gold tomatoes, she enjoys sugaring with her family, weekends in her pottery studio and taking her Great Dane for a hike in the woods.
