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.
You can find Shayla Nastasi with a helmet in one hand and a bag of fresh vegetables in the other. Her passion for healthy food access began during her two years of service with AmeriCorps Public Allies in her home state of Delaware and as a VISTA in NYC. Her work primarily consists of helping families make healthy eating an integral and easy part of life. She spends most of her time planning menus, gardening and following Shiba Inus around Brooklyn.
Chris Thompson is a community composter with a background in psychology and neuroscience research. After leaving the sterile laboratory for a more organic scene, he became interested in urban agriculture, soil building, and organics recovery in New York City. This led Chris to complete a Composting Apprenticeship with Earth Matter on Governors Island, where he processes GrowNYC food scraps into black gold with the aid of chickens, goats, worms, and microbes. You can find Chris collecting food scraps at the Columbia University and Fort Greene Greenmarkets. You'll know him by his impressive beard, his penchant for good conversation, and his eagle eye for non-compostable contaminants.
