Brett and Judy Caldwell

Program: Horticulture
At Clackamas, Brett and Judy Caldwell are learning skills to grow their farming business.

Brett used to work as a “cable guy.” It was a well-paying job. But he worked long hours and a lot of overtime. He was not able to spend much time at home with his family - his wife Judy and their five children. He had even less time for his favorite hobby: gardening in their backyard and growing food, including bananas and pineapples.

Together, the family made a very big decision: To move from Florida to Oregon, and live a simpler, more meaningful life as a farming family.

Now Brett and Judy Caldwell are both CCC students and scholarship recipients. Brett is earning an associate’s degree in horticulture. Judy is earning an associate’s degree and a certificate in urban agriculture. They are learning the business of small farming and how to grow and sell healthy food.

The Caldwell family is living their American dream of a simpler, sustainable and more meaningful life. And with help from CCC and scholarships, they are learning skills to grow their farming business, the Caldwell Family Farm.
