Meet the new farm caretaker and family!

Meet the Loves! Four days after returning from their honeymoon this past June, newlyweds Athens (they/them) and Erin (she/her) packed up their house in the Vine neighborhood and moved to AACORN with their dog, Moose. Since moving, the three of them have settled into the quieter sounds of country life. Athens works as the Sr. Philanthropy Officer for a non-profit organization; The Cornucopia Institute. They have a passion for relationship building and meeting new people. Erin discovered her passion for farm life after living at Lake Village Homestead for three years. This is where she first learned of AACORN and is proud to be a part of this community. Moose has also been enjoying his time here making regular appearances on the walks with participants and giving kisses to anyone who lets him. In the future, Athens and Erin would like to combine their love for community and nature by starting their own non-profit farm to provide temporary housing and safe space for women and people of the LGBTQIA+ community.
