Andrew, CSA Coordinator & Executive Director
As part of a philosophical quest to understand the basic work that sustains us, Andrew decided to visit and work on a few farms during his college years. This turned into a multi-year journey across North America, in which he worked on over 100 farms. By the time he settled in Yellow Springs, he had developed a deep love of nature, a knowledge of horticulture, and a desire to live simply with a cooperative group of people that grew food to meet their own needs and the needs of the
land itself. Andrew works in all areas at Heartbeat, and
coordinates the Community Supported Agriculture
program and currently serves as the executive director.
Tim, Training Coordinator
In high school and college, Tim developed a strong concern for people and the environment. After a series of transformative experiences in Central America, inner cities, and on farms, Tim realized how food could play an important role in empowering people and protecting the natural world. He came to Yellow Springs wanting to live simply, grow food, and help others do the same. He has farmed in various capacities over the past 5 years. Tim works in all areas at Heartbeat, and coordinates the Farmer Training program.
