Meet the Timpson Creek Farm Team

Darby Weaver

After growing up in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Darby attended Sterling College in Northern Vermont where she received a degree in Sustainable Agriculture.  She has since spent the last decade growing Biodynamic produce in the Southeast and teaching holistic and ecological methods to learners of all ages and backgrounds through articles, agriculture intensives, workshops, and lectures.

Darby’s passion for this work is derived from an endless curiosity for the complex and dynamic systems nature operates from.  She finds her greatest meaning from sharing with others how to engage with these living systems to create nourishing food for the body and mind.

Gabriela Montoya gabitron

With growing food and stewarding landscapes deeply embedded into her cultural traditions, Gabriela has spent her adult life seeking a lifestyle that connects her back to her roots.  Originally from Mexico, Gabriela lives in the North Georgia Mountains and believes that growing food is as much a spiritual practice as it is a practical one.

She puts special importance in sharing healthful food and spiritual wellness with others and enjoys teaching children in the garden.  Her growing experience has taught her how to handle the soil types of the Southeast and has given her an affinity for companion plantings.  Appreciating the influences of the cosmic bodes, growing in tune with the Sun and Moon has taught her many lessons about what makes plants thrive.

Elliot Smith


This Atlanta native has spent the last decade learning the intricate systems involved in Organic and Biodynamic crop production.  Farming most every growing condition in the State of Georgia, from the coastal plain to the mountainous region of the Southern Appalachians where he now lives.

Elliot shares a kinship with traditional wisdom and old-timey, tried and true methods and incorporates this into how me manages farmland.  He believes in working soil responsibly and has developed an artisan’s hand with tractors and implements of all kinds.  His passion for food and the culinary arts brought him into the fields initially, and his deep connection to living systems keeps him there; a lasting relationship that has him learning and growing at every turn of the season.
