Welcome Youth Board Members

Welcome Youth Board Members

This fall, we welcome two new youth board members: Matt and Hannah.

Matt is a rising senior year at CCHS. In addition to working at Woods Hill Table in West Concord, he enjoys traveling, photography, and gardening in his backyard.

Last summer, Matt took a one-week course at UMass Amherst to learn more about food insecurity, organic farming, and the importance of accessible food. He follows a vegan diet for ethical and environmental reasons and hopes to gain more knowledge about farming and the environment during his time at Gaining Ground.

Hannah is also a rising senior at CCHS, where she plays varsity lacrosse and participates in BookPals, a group that donates and reads books to Boston children. Outside of school, she has worked at JuJu and the Concord Country Club. After volunteering two previous seasons, she will be a co-captain of the Gaining Ground Farm Team this summer.

Hannah is a pescatarian and passionate about healthy eating and nutrition. She appreciates Gaining Ground's emphasis on eating clean, sustainably raised produce and looks forward to working more closely with the farm.
