February Monthly Member Gathering
February 1 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm ESTFree
Join us in February to discuss Volunteer Management and Engagement! We’ll be joined by guest presenter Becca Roe, Red Wiggler Community Farm’s Volunteer and Grower Coordinator. Our discussion will include plenty of opportunities to share best practices, ask questions, and learn new tactics to engage new and existing volunteers. Registration is required, and attendance is free and open to all. You will receive the Zoom link via email after you register.
As manager of the volunteer and service learning programs at Red Wiggler, Becca gets to dream up and implement ways to help Red Wiggler continue to be a welcoming, friendly, and inclusive place for our broader community. In addition, Becca supports the Grower program by maintaining scheduling and communications, and helping track Growers’ skills and growth on the farm. Becca is motivated to create and maintain a safe, educational, and transformational experience for everyone who comes to the farm, and loves to share in the weird wonders of the natural world and the magic of growing food for friends and community.
Before coming to Red Wiggler, Becca tried out many different roles within the world of food and farming. She graduated from Middlebury College with a B.A. in Environmental Studies and Geography, and spent time after college as an apprentice and volunteer at farms in Maine, Nepal, and Spain. In 2016, Becca reconnected to her hometown of DC through service with FoodCorps AmeriCorps at DC Bilingual Public Charter School, and later on as a community nutrition educator with the Food Access and Education team at DC Central Kitchen.
Off the farm, Becca can be found hanging out with pals around DC, doing crafty things, going on hikes and bike rides, singing in a social justice-themed women’s a cappella group, and generally annoying her cat.
