Katie, Farm coordinator
Katie manages the day-to-day running of FCF and heads up the business and marketing side of things. She reports directly to the board.
Before starting at Farnham Community Farm as a growing apprentice, Katie ran her own business designing and producing creative displays for retailers such as Harrods and Selfridges. The business was a success, and they had a blast, but after six years, Katie finally gave in to her true calling to do something more meaningful and outdoors in nature.
Katie is passionate about the local, organic food movement, and claiming back food sovereignty for the people. She dreams of a future where every town has a CSA!
Jane discovered FCF four years ago while looking for local, pesticide-free food for her family. She immediately joined as a regular volunteer and in 2015 became our Assistant Grower.
In her free time, Jane loves going on walks with her two dogs, and spends as much time as possible with her family, including her new granddaughter. Jane is a great cook and brings in lots of delicious vegan treats to share with the volunteers. She has recently completed her Reiki Level 1, and is always happy to find new people to practise on!
Nick has been with FCF for the past five years. He studied biomedical science at the University of Bristol, but was drawn to horticulture by the depth and breadth of the subject.
Recently, he has enjoyed creating the vegetable garden at UCA Farnham, designing a perennial vegetable garden in Hampshire, and leading a land reclamation project in Devon.
Nick describes himself as a passionate learner, and particularly enjoys the immediacy and practicality that comes with working outdoors. He has created his own farm management software, which we implemented with our crop plan, sowing schedules and more.
