Meet our Staff
Wayne McAuliffe, Interim Executive Director and Manager of Volunteer Programs
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 and Marketing Manager
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.

MaryHope Gardner, Development Coordinator
Access to healthy food is something so many people take for granted and at the same time, is something so many people don’t get to experience. I’m extremely excited to be part of an organization that is dedicated to creating an environment where a healthy lifestyle can be possible for everyone through education and volunteer farming.

Dave Johnson, Farm 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.

Amanda Carrier, Farm Coordinator
The farm gives us the ability to learn from nature while building community. Every day is a new adventure filled with opportunity and I love getting to share my passion for farming with others. Food Security within my community is a goal I strive for, and being able to work towards that goal on the farm is a dream. I love the community here and the passion of everyone involved. It is truly a wonderful place.

Susan Conant, Orchard Manager
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.

Working closely with trees and plants means that our work is always transforming. We are constantly learning how to be better nurturers, growers and stewards for our environment and community. I’m so grateful to do this living work everyday, while expanding access to fresh, just food.
