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. As the owner/operator of Owl's Nest Farm, she loves working hard, growing healthy food and building strong relationships. Liz uses she/her pronouns and she is really into kale.
Owl's Nest Farm started in 2016. When Liz's former CSA farmer, Kristin from Radix Farm, decided to sell her farm operation, Liz jumped at the chance to take over caring for the land and growing good food for great people in DC.
Sara grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania surrounded on every side by farm land. They worked here in DC at the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture as their 2017 Farm Education Assistant, teaching K-6th graders in the DMV about topics from pollination to local planting and harvesting, and maintaining the Hilltop Farm. They have also been a part of Chaia – a woman-owned, seasonal vegetarian, taco shop – for the past three years as a worker in farmer’s markets and Assistant General Manager in their brick and mortar store.
When they don’t have their hands covered in soil, Sara is a community organizer for DC Fair Food - standing in solidarity with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers where they were a part of the national Steering Committee for the Wendy’s Boycott in 2017. Since moving to DC six years ago, they have been in a state of awe at the beauty and resilience of the local food and food justice world being created here. They're excited about being a part of the magic that happens at Owl's Nest for a second year in 2019.
Maddie (she/hers) is originally from just up 495 in Rockville, MD. As someone who holds near and dear to her heart the community and joy that good food can bring, Maddie is excited to have the opportunity to (literally) grow that love at Owl’s Nest. Though she has worked variously in the education andnonprofit sectors, Maddie has always found herself drawn to growing, cooking, and sharing food.
Shehopes to see you at the Petworth Market on Saturdays or at our CSA pickup on Tuesday nights. Maddie is always down to talk recipes and has what can only be described as a passionate attachment to cooking with garlic.
