Wade Clement

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 the Grow Food Northampton 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.
