Christy has always felt a special connection to the land from a young age- from helping in the garden, exploring the woods and enjoying the outdoors through sports, to seeing her father Richard Grimm’s passion for the land and commitment to and engagement with WRLC. She also serves on the board of The Farm School Foundation. The Farm School mission is to connect people to the land through including but not limited to a visiting school program for young people and their teachers, the Chicken Coop school, a full-time, one-room home school cooperative for local kids and a learn to farm program.25
