Bonnie Hull, who has worked for us part time since 2007, has agreed to join us as our greenhouse manager. I am thrilled to be able to hire Bonnie in this position. Apart from her own ‘kitchen garden’ of about a quarter acre, Bonnie and her husband Aaron and his brothers have recently bought a farm in Layton, NJ just a few miles from Upper Meadows Farm. We see a great opportunity to advocate for organic and develop a synergistic relationship with emerging area farms.
A very capable worker, motivated and goal-oriented, Bonnie is a ceramic artist. She has a degree in fine arts from SUNY New Paltz. She was artist in residence at Art School of the Berkshires where she was the recipient of a Geraldine R. Dodge Grant in 2007, along with a two-month residency at the Peter’s Valley Craft Center, which is just down the road from the farm. Among other accolades for her ceramics, Bonnie is known for her rhythmic and colorful glaze surfaces.
Bonnie will be selling her ceramics at the Manhattan Plaza Community Market (our distribution location in Hell’s Kitchen). The same attention to detail and work ethic that she devotes to her art brings a solid foundation for our plant production in the greenhouses. Drop her a line to welcome her or just chat. Planting begins today!!!
