“Home Winds is an absolute treasure, a magnificent property. All the people I work with are passionate about what they do, have a good sense of humor, and are kind. The students are wonderful, engaged learners.”
Ned Lincoln’s appreciation for GSB’s landscape is evident in his bucolic vision of the “sun rising through the early morning fog, as the first rays break over the eastern hills, radiating out over the garden, farm, and campus.”
A graduate of The Thacher School, Ojai, CA, he graciously embraced the GSB community and culture, and in many respects, returned home to both New Jersey and an independent school environment.
He finds meaning in his work and derives inspiration from all around him. In the fields, inside the barn, on the tractor, in the classroom. What resonates for Ned is a calling to help our students gain perspective on the world by learning about agriculture, the very foundation of our civilization. “By informing students here, I hope to increase the awareness of agriculture in our community and encourage the positive development of practices and policies. Informed citizens make better decisions on the individual and group scale.”
Ned’s passion and sense of wonder are evident in his animated and energetic presence in the classroom. One memorable, delightful, and defining moment occurred when he watched his Animal Science students overcome their hesitation with examinations of the larger animals, carefully handling them and becoming more comfortable – a positive, impactful, and observable transformation.
