Meet Wade Clement, a recent addition to GFN’s star volunteer force! Bringing a wealth of building trade skills and a cheery demeanor, Wade jumped in this spring to guide the infrastructure development of GFN’s Florence Organic Community Garden–including our beautiful tool shed and irrigation system.
A relative newcomer to the Northampton area, Wade has been involved with community & home gardening and the relocalization movement throughout his adult life. As a volunteer for Growing Gardens in Boulder, CO, he built much of their community garden infrastructure. Wade is a successful entrepreneur and a master electrician with a specialty in lighting. He has a playful, creative side. Visit his BearFest bear entitled “Beehive Beardo” in Easthampton’s Pulaski Park.
