We are extremely excited to welcome Stacie Brimmage (pictured on the right) back to the REC as our YouthGROW Coordinator! Stacie earned a BA in Human Ecology from College of the Atlantic before starting at the REC as a School Gardens AmeriCorps VISTA. After her AmeriCorps VISTA service, she became our UGROW Coordinator. Before her recent return to the REC, Stacie was working as the Program Coordinator for Dynamy Youth Academy, a 4 year after school program for high school students that focuses on college access and readiness, leadership, and community engagement.
"The YouthGROW Coordinator position is my dream job and I love the REC team. I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to work with young people on an urban farm that I've been connected to for almost 10 years. I'm very much looking forward to working outside this summer and am really enjoying working with our youth staff each week planning and preparing for an awesome summer season!" - Stacie Brimmage
