PROCUREMENT & LOGISTICS MANAGER, FOOD ACCESS TEAM
Claire and her love of farming are rooted in the Vermont soil. Claire is from the small town of Bennington, VT on the Vermont/New York State border and has been farming in the area since she was 16. She attended Wesleyan University where she graduated with a B.A. in Sociology. In addition to farming, Claire has experience in the non-profit space with organizations promoting access to the outdoors in urban areas. She has helped with the funding and execution of environmental education programs for an NYC-based non-profit and supported public programs for the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy. It was in these experiences that Claire became committed to fighting injustices in outdoor spaces and working towards an equitable food system. After a recent move to Austin, Claire is excited to marry her backgrounds and interests here at Farmshare Austin with the Food Access Team.
