Jennifer Malkoun

Deaver Wellness Farm Manager

Led by a desire to advance an equitable and environmentally sustainable alternative to our industrial food system, and a need to reconnect with the earth, Jen found her way into organic farming in 2011. Along the way she discovered the power and transformative joy of community-grown food. Jen broke ground at the Deaver Wellness Farm in 2014, and has been growing with it ever since. Although she loves growing nourishing food for all humans, Jen’s secret pleasure is flower gardening.
