Our Team


Haley Tietz (they/them) – Farm Director  This is Haley‘s second season at Phillies Bridge. Originally from California, they studied literature at Hamilton College before discovering farming at Kingfisher Farm and Common Thread CSA in Central New York. After four seasons at Common Thread, Haley is excited to continue both learning and teaching others about sustainable agriculture at Phillies Bridge. They find the work of farming meaningful in part because it is an opportunity to work towards a more just and sustainable food system. They hope to be able to share that sense of meaning with the people they meet here.
Outside of work, they enjoy several forms of art, particularly collage. When they’re not farming or making art, they can often be found knitting or reading science fiction with a cat on their lap.
Haley can be reached at farm@philliesbridge.org.

Alyssa Bruno (she/her) – Education Director

Alyssa is a SUNY New Paltz graduate and NYS certified 7-12 English teacher beginning her first season at Phillies Bridge as the Education Director. She has always had a passion for education, with her personal pedagogy centering around equity, accessibility, and social justice. Though she initially aimed to become a classroom teacher, Alyssa fell in love with place-based learning and education in settings outside of the classroom during her time working at a local historic site. Alyssa hopes to bring her passion for accessible, engaging, and social justice-oriented education to life through educational programming for learners of all ages visiting Phillies Bridge Farm. When Alyssa isn’t writing curriculum and running educational programs, you can find her tending to her garden and many houseplants, hiking all across the beautiful mountains of the Hudson Valley, or making her way through her miles-long list of books to read.  You can reach Alyssa at education@philliesbridge.org
