Dami is currently the Beverly and Wenham Assistant Grower. He has held several positions with The Food Project—starting in 2010 with Seed Crew and Dirt Crew. Following his graduation from UMass Lowell with a B.S. in Public Health, Dami returned to The Food Project to work as a crew leader, farmers market consultant, and an administrator. As a Nigerian immigrant who enjoyed helping out as a kid on his grandfather’s farm, Dami has found The Food Project to be a great place to be part of a community and stay connected to his agricultural roots. When not at work, Dami enjoys playing soccer, hiking, and going on outdoor adventures.
