Jeremy Tardif, Garden Manager

Jeremy Tardif, Garden Manager

Jeremy Tardif has been farming organically for 8 years, 4 of which saw him raising vegetables and livestock at a local educational facility.  Farming seemed a natural pursuit based on his love of good food and productivity.  He is extremely passionate about local food systems, and teaching others the stories about the foods we eat.  In addition to farming, he has worked professionally on commercial fishing boats in the Bering Sea, and is a licensed arborist.  Outside of campus, Jeremy, his wife and two sons enjoy homesteading in Woolwich, where they raise poultry and cultivate an edible landscape.

Ian Trask, Garden Assistant

Ian Trask '05 studied Biology and worked for numerous years in science research labs before eventually changing his career path and becoming a visual artist. Ian spent the next 8 years living in Brooklyn, NY where he honed his creative practice of making art from trash. He and his wife Daniella '05 moved back to midcoast Maine in 2015 and currently live in Topsham. Ian jumped at the opportunity to join the Bowdoin Organic Garden team in the Summer of 2017, happy to get his hands dirty and continue his Bowdoin education as a novice farmer. When not at the garden, Ian is working out of his art studio in the Fort Andross building in downtown Brunswick.
