Kellie Henwood serves the agricultural community in her role as Regional Small Farms Coordinator for WSU Extension in Clallam, Jefferson and Kitsap Counties and assists farmers with resources and education. She coordinates for the Jefferson LandWorks Collaborative and is a member of the statewide WSU Food Systems Program Team. Kellie graduated from the Evergreen State College with a BA in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems and has worked on many organic farms throughout Washington state for ten years. From 2009-20011, she served on the Board of Directors for Tilth Producers of Washington, a statewide non-profit serving farmers.

Her other passions include backpacking, mushroom hunting, beach combing, gardening, spending time with her family, and playing rock and roll music.
