Get a Glimpse of "Glynwood"
Spring usually marks the time of year when on-farm events and workshops bring the community back in touch with our amazing team here at Glynwood. Since things are so different this year, we wanted to share a few glimpses into the personal and professional lives of our staff since we enacted our COVID-19 business operations back in mid-March. We all miss seeing you, but we’re hard at work keeping the farm growing, the property humming, and building our regional food system back stronger and more resilient than it was before. Most of all, we are grateful for our health, safety and the incredible support of our community, now and always. We hope you enjoy this “Glimpse of Glynwood.”

Megan Larmer, Director of Regional Food
"Soup for lunch with the last of the Glynwood tomatoes I put up last summer - an act of faith that the sunshine and tomatoes will come back soon."
Kathleen Finlay, President
“hike in Fahnestock...blue trail, a fave. I'm trying to walk a few times a week to gain proper perspective on things.”
Dave Llewellyn, Director of Farmer Training
"Perfect setting for zoom classes on irrigation, holistic visioning and shop safety!"
Ellie Brown, Vegetable Apprentice
A couple of cocktails Ellie made with lovage from Glynwood's herb patch: lovage, simple syrup, gin, tonic, + lovage stem “straws”
Sherrie Nachamkin, Finance Assistant
"We have been plagued this quarantine by a robin attacking our front windows many times an hour. This set up deterred it, but only for about an hour!"
Joanna Tilton, Vegetable Apprentice
"Ellie [veggie apprentice] and I had some fun foraging ramps on Glynwood's property; then I made ramp pesto sourdough."
Ashley Latham, Social Events Manager
"My partner Brian and I have been helping Beacon Daily to deliver meals to FDNY EMS in the Bronx."
Liz Corio, VP of Development
"My sheepdog Alice is part therapist and part personal trainer: together we get out for some #naturetherapy everyday on the trails behind our house. Even when things are tough or I may feel overwhelmed, Alice makes sure I move my body and remember to stop and smell the spring breeze!"
Carmela Frattellone, Director of HR and Accounting
“I like gardening — it's a place where I find myself when I need to lose myself.” (Alice Sebold) This quote says it all. My daughter and I planted seeds the first week we were home because we needed a distraction from life. The irony is this is a symbol of life and this gives me faith to believe the world will heal.
