LESLIE KENDRIGAN MEREDITH
Leslie opened Farmhouse School when she bought the historic Beatty-Mongerson property in the spring of 2021. Before then, she had a successful marketing career and was teaching kids to grow and cook as a side hustle. Along the way, she launched a community garden project in her neighborhood, worked with a middle school to create a new garden and club, and won the Daily Herald Cook of the Year competition. She continues to write a column in that paper, focused on cooking with kids. Leslie is delighted to be able to expand her operation to a full-time, full-heart endeavor with plenty of space to grow, teach, cook and savor in a picturesque rural setting.
