40 Farmers under 40

July 27, 2009 at 7:24 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

Our own Anna Stevenson is featured in the Mother Nature Network’s list of 40 farmers under 40! Check her out here at number 36 http://www.mnn.com/food/farms-gardens/stories/40-farmers-under-40 . The article’s sub title reads, “meet the new crop of American farmers — young and energetic idealists who are bringing local, sustainable food back to the table”. It’s a perfect way to describe our farm manager, who after ADAMAH will be moving to the Rochester, NY area to start a farm with her fiance Naf, who is not only an ADAMAH alum, but also served a term as the greenhouse manager. Congrats Anna!

  1. Let’s not forget Adamah Alum, Rachel Tali Kaplan, who made the same list ranked at number 27! Her bio reads:

    “Rachel Tali Kaplan is the farm manager at Georgia’s Gaia Gardens, a two-acre urban, organic vegetable, fruit and flower farm just outside the city of Atlanta. This native Mainer grew her first vegetable on the banks of the Hollenbeck River as an ADAMAH fellow, a leadership development program for Jewish young adults, at the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center.

    A graduate of Grinnell College and the Beit Midrash program for Talmud study at the Drisha Institute for Jewish Studies, Kaplan has taught at summer camps in Maine and Canada, Hebrew school programs in Iowa and New Jersey, and on farm educational programs in Connecticut and Georgia. With four seasons of farming under her belt, a decade of informal teaching and three years of nonprofit management, she loves collaborating with fellow council members of the Jewish Farm School to develop curriculum and create programming that promotes sustainable agriculture and supports just food systems rooted in Jewish tradition.”

    Way to go Rachel!

    Not bad for Adamah, either, which landed TWO alumni on this incredible list of talented young farmers!
