Grace was raised in Oregon and has spent the past five years residing in Colorado. Her love for farming grew in her own Denver backyard garden and expanded in an organic garden in Patagonia and Boulder.

Maddy torraca jones

The Veg Yard Founder

Maddy grew up in Maine helping in her family's veggie and flower gardens and has spent the last four seasons farming in Denver, Boulder, and in her home state. Like her spirit vegetable, the carrot, she loves to spend the majority of her time in the dirt. When she isn't farming, she can be found climbing rocks, skiing, and getting creative. 

 

ABBY RIVERS

Farm Apprentice

Abby is excited to join the Veg Yard team this year as a farm apprentice! She has a background in holistic health, medical herbalism and gardening. She cannot possibly choose a favorite veggie but identifies with radishes - a lil spicy and a lil weird (in a good way).

 

KATIE KETCHUM

Katie grew up in the rolling hills of the Idaho Panhandle and spent the past four years studying Geography and International Studies at the University of Denver. She has worked on organic farms, advocated for sustainable food through her university and local non-profits, and conducted research on food security in Uganda.
