Ashley Jordan, Assistant Farm Manager

Ashley came to Red Wiggler the in the summer of 2017 as a volunteer intern. She quickly found her place on the farm due to her shared love of growing food and community building. After graduating from James Madison University in 2018, with a degree in Biology, she returned as a seasonal crew leader. Now, as a part of the full time staff, she assists Melissa in the many tasks it takes to keep the farm running.


Ashley has always found joy in admiring the beauty of nature and being outdoors. She has always been drawn to working on farms and finding ways to mimic natural systems when growing food. She has found that environmental stewardship and caring for others is integral to her purpose in life, and is very excited to pursue those passions at Red Wiggler. When not at the farm, you can find Ashley looking under rocks for bugs, hiking, reading philosophy and theology, or playing guitar.
