Welcome to our new Assistant Manager, AJ!
Stop by the green market tent to greet the newest member of our team, Lutheran Volunteer Corps member Amy “AJ” Jones.
AJ joins us from near Seattle, WA and she just finished a summer of working in Juneau, Alaska. She will be with us through August of next season, and her favorite vegetables are tomatoes straight from the vine in her backyard.
