Janel Wright, Market Manager This is Janel's first year managing the CWFM. During the growing season, Janel is a farmer, most recently at Barrett's Mill Farm in Concord, MA, a farm that cultivates vegetables, herbs, and flowers for over 200 families weekly through a Community Supported Agriculture program.
Janel holds a BA in Sociology and Social Work from Gordon College and a MS in International Agricultural Development from University of California, Davis. She has over a decade of experience working for equitable access to fresh food and towards a vibrant local food system. She is so excited to bring together the dynamite group of 2019 CWFM vendors, musicians and community groups to create a welcoming community space each Saturday this winter. When not working at the market, you can find her in her kitchen cooking up something tasty or dreaming about next season's flower patch.
