Heidi Woolever is a former sheep farmer who moved to New York City after 8 years in rural Maine and upstate New York. In 2014 she founded Rockaway Herbs, a small batch, handmade herb & tincture company and in 2015 she co-founded the Herb & Dye Rockaway Garden. Woolever also has experience raising pigs, chicken & bees.
During his 15 year tenure as a NYC public school teacher, Matt and his students – more often than not – could be found outside. The experience of working with children in nature reinforced Matt’s belief that dirt can change lives. Going back even further, memories of planting a vegetable garden at a very young age, with an old family friend, is indelibly etched into Matt’s mind. Learning to pickle peppers from that same friend sealed the deal. While it took a while to return ‘home,’ Edgemere Farm has made the journey complete.
