THE FUNNY FARM STAFF
The "Funny Farm" is staffed by incredible, caring, loving, and dedicated people that truly care.
Our resident Animal Caretakers, Rhonda and Jackeline, live, love, laugh, and cry with the animals. They care for them in every sense of the word: they groom them, clean them, clean up after them, love them, listen to them, but most of all...they give them the space to live out their lives in dignity.
Jackalene Dawson is the Queen of the BEE BARN. She is the beekeeper with Kayla and much much more! Jackalene is developing a number of opportunities for kids in our community to learn the art of Beekeeping. She is also working with the youth to creaste a sustainable business producing, marketing, and selling honey related products. The proceeds of the sales will be used to support the participating youth in pursuing a career in the beekeeping world.
Kayla Hammell is the Volunteer Coordinator, Chief Volunteer, and Beekeeper. Kayla has been with us since the beginning and is an extraordinary part of our daily running of the "un-programs". She not only volunteers to be with the kids and animals for every session she can be there for, but she coordinates other volunteers to be their in support as well. She also is the co-beeker of our 24 colonies of honey bees!
The farm operations and programs are overseen by Bri Morisset. She, with her 3 kids Jax, Neely, and Max, will be seen at the farm during most un-program days. She is the contact for "un-programs" and for any inquiries to the farm.
