The Community Farm of Simsbury will soon have new leadership as executive director Timothy Goodwin leaves the farm for a new job with Hartford Public Schools.
In an email to farm members, Goodwin announced that he will begin his new job as an administrator with Hartford Public Schools on Wednesday, August 22.
"I will greatly miss the farm, and make this announcement with very mixed emotions, on one hand excited about the chance to serve the special students in Hartford's north end, but also sad that my role at CFS will be diminished," Goodwin said.
Goodwin will be replaced by interim Executive Director Mark Nolan. Nolan was the principal at Pine Grove Elementary School in Avon for 17 years. Nolan recently led an effort to raise 1.3 million dollars for the Avon Library. Currently he is employed as an Executive Coach for the CT State Department of Education.
