Meet our Staff
Cordelia “Cordie” Lyon, Executive Director
After growing up surrounded by farms and spending several years involved in sustainable agriculture, I firmly believe that healthy food should be available to all. It’s that connection with Community Harvest Project’s mission, and the awe inspiring community of volunteers, that has brought me here. I consider it a privilege to put my skills to use for the CHP mission.

Wayne McAuliffe, Volunteer Program Manager
CHP offers the entire community a place to come together in order to help others, from the first day I volunteered here I knew that it was powerful work. When the opportunity came to join the staff and change career paths I jumped in and did not look back. To sum it up having the ability to connect with the community in such a powerful way makes every day on the farm a good one.

Tori Buerschaper, Education Coordinator
A farm is naturally a place for discovery, and since CHP is open to everyone we exponentially increase those moments of learning and wonder that occur here. Constantly being part of, fostering, capturing, and sharing that magic makes me so happy to be here every day. Fresh produce is both a joy to eat and a vital component of a healthy diet, and I want it to be a part of every meal, for every person.

Carolyn Ambrose, Development Manager
I love CHP’s mission to improve access to healthy fruits and vegetables for those who need them most. I plan to personally engage individuals and corporations not only for donations and sponsorship opportunities but also with the help of the CHP team to offer them the invaluable experience and the wonderful feeling of doing good in the community. Doing both successfully will make my heart sing.

Stephanie Collins, Development Coordinator
It is exciting to know that my role can directly make a difference for the community. My passion for the CHP mission grows every day I arrive at the farm. The ability to be able to watch the seedlings grow into fresh produce/fruit that will support the families in this area makes it all worthwhile.

Annie Stegink, Farm Co-Manager
I love working on a farm and connecting to the earth in a very tangible way. It’s awesome to see the box of seeds at the beginning of the season grow into thousands of pounds of food with the help of countless volunteers and dedicated staff. It’s amazing what a positive change a community can make when they come together.

Dave Johnson, Farm Co-Manager
The Farm draws us into the natural cycle of things. It is a place of growth and consistent change as seeds sprout and seasons shift. These transformations are an every day part of our work and are reflected internally. I am incredibly grateful to work and grow alongside such a dedicated community of volunteers to alleviate hunger through agriculture.

It is very rewarding when you can do what you love while having a positive impact on your community. Working at CHP allows me to do both! Growing high quality produce for those in need makes every day worthwhile.
