Owl's Nest farm is 100% woman-owned!
Liz has worked on diversified vegetable farms since 2009, including several small farms in the DC metro region. She worked in production and at the farmer’s market for the Farm at Our House in Olney, MD, and she managed educational growing spaces at the Neighborhood Farm Initiative and the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Agriculture. From 2013 to 2015, Liz was the On-Farm Program Director at Angelic Organics Learning Center in Caledonia, IL, where she learned from one of the oldest and biggest CSA farms in the country.
Foster studied environmental science with a concentration in agriculture at the University of Maryland College Park where he was a founding member of the UMD Rooftop Community Garden. He has worked as a lead mentor for the Ag Discovery, a college course for high school students interested in careers in agriculture and has participated in a variety of urban farming and food justice initiatives including the Neighborhood Farm Initiative, the Maryland Food Cooperative, and the DC Master Gardener Program.
Foster has worked as the production manager at Nature by Design, a native plant nursery in Alexandria,VA since 2013, and is excited to be joining Owl's Nest Farm for the 2017 season.
Foster's enduring favorite vegetable is the eggplant, with its stunning variations in size, flavor, shape, and color.
P.S. Shout out to Genevieve and Spencer who helped found Owl's Nest Farm and have since moved on to new projects.
