Meet Farmer Nina Berryman

Nina Berryman
CSA co-manager

Nina grew up in the deep woods of northern Vermont, and is one of the state's biggest fans. After going to university in Quebec for four years, she enrolled in a farming school in British Columbia for 8 months. Here the joys (and frustrations) of farming became addictive and she set out to find work in urban farming. A few google searches later, Weavers Way came onto her radar and in the spring of 2008 she moved to Philadelphia. Now she lives in a communal household in Mt. Airy and is often seen tromping around Weavers Way Co-op in mud boots and a sun hat. If she could be any vegetable it would be bulb fennel.
