Manager

Lucy is inspired by her Mexican heritage’s cuisine – simple, fresh, and unifies the family. Building on such, she is passionate about Immigrant and Migrant workers rights, food justice, and education policy for bilinguals.  She is pursuing a master’s of Urban Policy and Administration at Brooklyn College. Lucy has been active in Farmers Markets for the past two years doing sales, outreach, and fundraising for Wearable Collections, Hot Bread Kitchen, and now joining Greenmarket’s management team. Lucy also has an avid Green thumb and has volunteered at urban gardens such as The Hattie Carthan Community Garden and The Revolutionary War Garden in Fort Greene.  Her favorite things to grow are tomatoes and eggplants!  Lucy is always looking for new urban spaces to cultivate, but in the meantime you can find her biking around and rummaging for fresh vegetables.

Compost Coordinator 

Fiona Lynch always felt slightly out of place being part of the family who grew corn and other veggies in their front yard in Staten Island, but it definitely helped to shape her love for food, agriculture, and the environment.  After graduating SUNY Binghamton with degrees in Environmental Studies and English, Fiona spent several months in Hawaii, living in a tent and working on an organic farm.  She's been with GrowNYC's Composting program since 2011, interned at the Brooklyn Grange this past season, and succeeded in growing seven tiny tomatoes in her dark apartment.  She enjoys dancing, hot coffee, and frozen food scraps.
