Farm Hub Names Interim Director

On June 1st, Brooke Pickering-Cole assumed the role of interim director of the Hudson Valley Farm Hub. The transition in leadership comes as the Farm Hub and the Local Economies Project teams have grown into two separate programs. Farm Hub operations and programming will be overseen by Brooke as interim director, along with the senior management team, which includes Eddie Clevenger (Farm Manager), Jean-Paul Courtens (Associate Director for Farmer Training), and Sarah Brannen (Associate Director for Programs). Bob Dandrew will continue to serve as the director of the Local Economies Project.

As interim director, Brooke looks forward to stewarding the Farm Hub’s next chapter as a growing organization collaborating to build resiliency in the local community and the Hudson Valley food system. Read more about the Farm Hub team.
