Manager

Kathleen Crosby is a graphic designer and local food enthusiast. Born and raised in Virginia, she is thrilled to be going back to her roots, her formidable years growing up on a farm raising goats and eating from vegetable gardens. In her spare time she bikes, fiddles around on Illustrator, and takes the term "slow food" a bit too literally as she often procrastinates by cooking complicated meals. She is proud to be a part of such an important organization that sustains local, ethical farming practices and improves the health and vitality of our communities.
