Associate Board Member
Jenna didn't grow up in the farming world, rather in the suburbs of Detroit. In 2016, she and her partner Tyler left their careers and life in Chicago for an 8 month long internship at an organic vegetable and flower farm in North Carolina. Following that experience, they moved to Tyler's hometown of Nelson NH and started Partners' Gardens LLC, a small-scale and no-till farm organically growing produce and flowers. They have worked with the NRCS and CCCD since arriving in NH and have enjoyed having the opportunity to complete conservation projects on the land, build innovative infrastructure, and enrich the land they grow on with the help of cover crops and no till methods. Jenna loves the challenge of growing lots of food in a small amount of space, creating cut flower bouquets for the market and learning new things like how to graft tomatoes. In her spare time she enjoys writing, playing fetch with her dog and going on adventures with her husband.
