We are delighted to announce Camp Glen Brook’s new Farm Director, Sadie Marshall. Please join us in welcoming her to the Glen Brook community!
Sadie grew up in Minneapolis and attended a Montessori school that owned a large organic farm in Wisconsin. The seeds of her love of farming were sown at this ‘land school’ through many trips during her elementary years, and a summer during college when she worked on the farm’s CSA. She graduated from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts with a concentration in creative writing and organic agriculture. During her college years, she worked on farms in California, Alaska, Wisconsin, and Ireland, and wrote about those communities.
She spent a year at the John C. Campbell Folk School in the mountains of North Carolina. While working in the gardens, she also took classes in blacksmithing, using natural dyes, spinning, weaving, quilting, folk dancing, wood-working, and cheese-making. She loves to make music, grow food, and laugh.
Sadie comes to us most recently from the Orchard Hill community where she grew an acre of vegetables, co-managed a pastured meat CSA, and worked at the Breadworks wood-fired baking operation. Sadie is thrilled to bring her skills and excitement to the farm at Camp Glen Brook.
