Trevor Hyde – Farm Manager & Educator (he/him/his)
Trevor joined the SEEDS Team in 2017, managing the farm itself, overseeing the farm education in all levels of SEEDS programming, and directly managing the DIG high school program. He has a Masters in Agriculture and Education from NC-State, and several years of experience farming in small settings. Since starting at SEEDS, Trevor has added over a half-acre of crop production to our 1.75acre property, restarted the DIG Program from scratch, designed the Middle School Program, and trained students to become leaders and staff in the field of sustainable agriculture education. He believes that we can change the world through food and our interaction with nature, and that teaching youth will create a generation of change for the future.

Betzaly – SEEDlings & SAPLINGs Farm Educator (she/her/hers)
Betzaly joined the SEEDS Team in 2019 as a student member of the DIG Program, graduating from Southern High School in the Spring of 2020, and continued on the team after graduating. In the DIG Program, she learned all the basics of sustainable farming. The most important piece of the program for her was learning leadership skills, how to manage a group of people, and how to stay professionally organized. She joined the Team in the Summer of 2021 as one of our new SEEDLINGS & SAPLINGs Farm Educators, bringing the knowledge and skills from the DIG Program to the Elementary and Middle School students in our SEEDlings and SAPLINGs Programs! She is excited to make a difference with the youth as a part of the team, and hopes they will see the value in staying with the programs and becoming a part of the organization.
