It is with great sadness that we announce that Co-Farm Manager Annie Stegink is leaving Community Harvest Project after 4 1/2 years to pursue new adventures. As many of you know, Annie has been working closely with Co-Farm Manager Dave Johnson this year and she feels that it is the right time to pass the operation into his capable hands for the remainder of this season, and the next. In the last several weeks Annie has been busily preparing the farm for her departure and her work will leave a lasting legacy here at the farm. We will greatly miss her beaming smile as will the thousands of volunteers that have come to know her over the years.
As a member of our team during our busiest period of growth, Annie has been instrumental in helping the volunteer farming operation run like a well-oiled machine. Her ability to plan, organize and communicate has been exceptional and we are far better off in our daily volunteer operations thanks to all of her hard work. Annie leaves knowing that she will always be part of the Community Harvest Project family and that she will be greatly missed. Her favorite memories are exactly what you would expect — interacting with all of our great volunteers and Team Leaders. Please join us in wishing Annie well as she heads out on her next uncharted adventure and good luck as we know her future is very bright. Thanks for everything Annie!
