Hi! My name is Tyler Schrock. As part of a volunteer program, I came to Denver to intern with Re:vision and the Bridge Project who are both doing some amazing work in Westwood. Since joining the team in September, I’ve watched Re:Vision grow and seen a crew of pretty incredible people come on board. Let me tell you about two of our newest staff members:
Josh Sampson has been obsessed with soil his whole life. His passion for dirt led him to study urban farming in 2013 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and then work with Will Allen at Growing Power Inc. where he learned how to turn depleted soil into black gold. After living in Brooklyn and LA, he moved out to Denver and worked to support the Denver Urban Farmer’s Collaborative, and start the Big Wonderful, and the Friday Night Bazaar. He has recently joined Re:Vision as our new Farm Manager, working to make the Westwood community a leader in organic local foods grown from the most nutrient rich soil in the front range.
Hannah Snyder is originally from Portland Oregon. She started her career as a community organizer and a political activist working to take on Big Ag in the Southwest, and retire coal fire power plants on the east coast, eventually helping to run a ballot initiative to stop a tarsands pipeline in Maine. Hannah started gardening and farming when she was 11 and never looked back—and now she is happy to through down her roots (literal and metaphorical) in Colorado and at Re:Vision where she is leading the charge as Office Manager. You might have already met Hannah through her incredible work uniting 80+ volunteers at Re:Vision, and if you haven’t, you should join Re:Vision’s cohort of volunteers and come say hello!
We are also looking for interns to come and join us to work on Social Media, Grant Writing, Food Policy, and become our Garden Manager. These are amazing opportunities to work on the ground and outside with the community. Don’t miss the chance to be out here working with the incredible people of Westwood.
