Colin has been growing food organically for the past 15 years. He worked on a variety of small farms in the Midwest before moving to the west coast in 2003 to teach garden-based environmental education. Quickly realizing that Washington is the most beautiful state in the Union, Colin has been farming, teaching and designing landscapes ever since. He founded the Seattle Urban Farm Company in January of 2007 and still looks forward to planting potatoes every spring.
Brad’s interest in food production started in a small vegetable garden at the Homestead, an experiential living center at Denison University in Ohio. After graduating, he apprenticed on organic farms around Ohio for several years, then took a position as the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Manager for Village Acres Farm in Pennsylvania. He moved to Seattle in 2007 to help Colin start the Seattle Urban Farm Company, and he is still building urban farms to this day.
Hilary has been with the Seattle Urban Farm Company since 2010. She brings with her an educational background in landscape architecture and urban planning from the University of Washington. At SUFCo Hilary is our in-house graphic designer, photographer, marketing manager and leads the maintenance team. Hilary blends her design background and edible gardening expertise to create landscapes that are equally beautiful and productive.
Sarah is our Lead Maintenance Manager.
Anne-Marie is one of our talented Maintenance Managers. Anne-Marie loves growing food because "in the city and suburbs alike, it’s easy to forget our dependence on plants and the soil for our survival. I farm to remember this dependence; to stay connected to the food I eat and where it comes from. I farm from a place of deep affection for the land and for the sheer delight I experience in the year’s first beet sprouts gently unfolding in the sun."
At SUFCo, Ian leads our skilled and creative installation team.
