Kara joined the BRCA Board as a Program Director and has been responsible for the Farmers’ Market and Rooftop Garden for the past two years. She has an unusual career that sees her splitting her time between the corporate world as a CPA, and furniture and fabric stores as an interior decorator. Kara is incredibly proud of how the market continues to grow each season and the unique vendors that can be found there each week. She is also amazed at how each gardener manages to take such a small plot of dirt and grow such a wide variety of vegetables over the summer.
Community members interested in taking over this role should have a passion for shopping locally and supporting community gardeners (a green thumb is not required). Both programs are run by two very dedicated committees and the Program Director works collaboratively with each committee to help develop and achieve their goals.
