MEET OUR TEAM
The Acres Farm team brings industry and education together to provide students with novel, rewarding, and practical educational experiences. A mix of educators, scientists, a chef, and a farmer, our team models the collaboration and leadership required to be a successful student now and an industry professional tomorrow.
The success of our program also relies on our community team. We work alongside Colorado farms to encourage everyone to buy local. We also partner with chefs to produce dinner events for our friends and family. Along the way, we model for our students what it means to co-lead, collaborate, work in partnership, problem-solve, think creatively, and manage projects.
Short for Ulysses because he is that daring, adventurous, and wonderful, Uly the dog is more than a furry faithful companion. He serves a practical function on the farm and the farm relies on him to help keep pests at bay.
Uly chases off bunnies, birds, squirrels, and deer that like to eat and dig and romp around the garden beds, which is fun for them but destructive for our learning and our harvests.
Uly is an Airedale Terrier who takes to the mountains when he is not on the farm. He's stopped counting his 14ers years ago!
