Jaren Hill Lockridge

Jaren Hill Lockridge is the Director for The Well at Oxun Run, a new urban farm and community wellness space in Washington, D.C.’s Ward 8. The one-acre site will be home to seasonal crop production, a pick-your-own flower garden, a farm stand, an orchard with chickens, a greenhouse, herb and pollinator gardens, and a large youth garden with outdoor classroom. The Well at Oxun Run is the result of a partnership with D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation, The Green Scheme, The Friends of Oxon Run, and community members living near Oxon Run Park. Hill’s years of leadership in Ward 8 will play a key role in her capacity to connect her community with new opportunities. Hill began her career in the Office of Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), and most recently worked to reduce and prevent violence in the District of Columbia’s Office of Neighborhood Safety & Engagement. Previous to assuming that role, she was appointed as the Director of Community Relations in the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Greater Economic Opportunity. She has also worked with the DC Department of Parks and Recreation as an Event & Support Service Specialist. Originally from Memphis, TN, Lockridge now lives in D.C. and holds a bachelor’s degree from Middle Tennessee State University.
