Jenn served at The Food Project on the North Shore as a FoodCorps service member from 2015 to 2017, and got hooked on growing food for a living. After a year-long apprenticeship in organic vegetable production and livestock management at The Farm School, Jenn is thrilled to be back at The Food Project, combining her love of growing food with her love for community work and the city of Lynn. Jenn has a degree in social work and a background in outdoor education.

Baie Rogers is currently serving as a FoodCorps Service Member working with The Food Project in Lynn. She joined The Food Project in 2011 as a Seed Crew Member and has since remained engaged with the organization by taking on a variety of roles—both as a youth and staff member. Inspired by The Food Project throughout her academic years, Baie was drawn to other opportunities that emphasized social justice and youth empowerment such as Wright-Locke Farm, FoodCorps, and 92Y—the Gilda and Henry Block School of the Arts. She recently completed her studies at Hampshire College, where she focused on documentary photography and sociology. Baie is extremely excited to continue to serve and learn from both The Food Project and the Lynn community!

Kim joined The Food Project in 2018 as the Grants Manager. She comes to The Food Project from the Asperger/Autism Network (AANE), where she served as the associate director of development. While at AANE, Kim crafted proposals, designed campaigns, and managed events to promote neurodiversity awareness and help people living on the autism spectrum build meaningful, connected lives. Kim received her B.A. in Anthropology from Haverford College and holds a degree in Chinese Medicine. She appreciates how the Chinese model of nurturing the body and spirit reflects a sustainable farmer’s ethos of tending the land. When she is not busy collecting and sharing stories from the field, you can find Kim running along her favorite wooded trails or shaping useful objects at a potter's wheel.
