Meet our team!
We have varying ideas for the farm, interests, and backgrounds in organic farming, permaculture, business, and the arts, but we all share the same goal of growing delicious food that’s good for our community using practices that are good for the earth.
Originally from Oakland, CA, Greg got his start pulling weeds for his mom at a young age for a nickel per handful. He grew up going on hikes, traveling and discovering great food with his family. Greg has a BA in Environmentally Sustainable Business Practice and Education from Western Washington University, where he also discovered his love for wild foraging, plant identification, ecology, gardening and permaculture. He spent two years living at the Bullock’s Permaculture Homestead on Orcas Island studying and living in their maturing Permaculture demonstration site, and managing their nursery. While there, he completed two Permaculture Design Courses, as well as an Advanced PDC. Greg is particularly interested in exploring and pursuing tree crops and fermented vegetables at Dancing Seeds Farm!
Zach grew up in Arizona and earned a degree in Physics at the University of Oregon where he learned his favorite physics law. The Law of Conservation maintains that energy cannot be created or destroyed; it can only be transformed. In the case of soil, whatever you take from it must be replaced. Zach has farmed in many places around the world, including Africa, Columbia, and California. Nowadays you’ll most likely find him munching on volunteer plants in the vegetable garden.
Gail grew up in Chicago, but she’s called the Pacific Northwest home for over three decades. Early career days landed her in the field of finance and accounting, but in recent years she’s been busy writing fiction, personal essays, and blogs. She’s always had a heart for old farms, new projects, and nature, and is excited to see these three passions come together at Dancing Seeds Farm.
John‘s commitment to a healthy lifestyle, background in the food industry, and unofficial gardening experience come together on Dancing Seeds Farm. He keeps us forward-thinking and organized.
New farm member Kassi Honcoop has moved in and brought along her energy and pizazz for farming! She’s also opened her first private massage studio, Madrona Massage, in the little cottage on the east side of the farm. A graduate of the Friday Harbor School of Massage 625-hour program, she uses deep tissue, myofascial alignment, and Swedish techniques to restore balance to the body. Email Kassi at email@example.com or call her at (971) 232-7640.
Caroline Bryant has joined our team as a summer intern. A graduate of Friday Harbor High School, Caroline has always loved farm life, having worked in gardens and at the farmer’s market since she was a toddler.. Please give her a warm welcome next time you stop by.
Kima is Zach’s beautiful husky. She keeps a watchful eye over everything that happens on the farm. Watch out, voles!
Lani and Zuzu love everything about the farm including all who visit, fly over, or crawl about. Be sure to say hello to them when you stop by.
