Glen Leven Farm Steward
Jack Duffus joined The Land Trust for Tennessee in October 2018 as the Glen Leven Farm Steward. In his role, Jack oversees the management of The Land Trust’s beautiful, 65-acre historic Glen Leven Farm located just four miles from downtown Nashville.
Jack first came to Tennessee to attend Sewanee, The University of the South, where he received his degree in biology with a focus on conservation and land management. Following multiple years serving as Assistant Park Manager at Lake Johnson Park in Raleigh, North Carolina, Jack and his wife, Sara, relocated to Nashville in 2018 where they are happy to once again call Tennessee home.
At Glen Leven, Jack manages the farm and coordinates the public programming we offer on the property, including field trip opportunities for local students, tree plantings, guided hikes and numerous volunteer service activities. The farm includes an educational garden, designated arboretum and numerous pastures for our livestock (including our miniature donkeys).
Jack enjoys most any activity that will get him outside, especially in the mountains. He and Sara are avid hikers, paddlers and love to travel throughout the country and abroad.
What do you love most about your job?
Being part of an organization that values land conservation as much as I do. Places like Glen Leven Farm are truly special and I am proud to help protect it and similar properties for future generations to experience.
