Seth Pomerantz

Assistant Manager, Recreation and Camp Director

My name is Seth Pomerantz and I am the Assistant Manager of The Farm.  Although I was not born in North Carolina, I can call Chapel Hill my home since I was seven years old.  I attended Ephesus Elementary, Phillips Middle School and East Chapel Hill High School.  I worked as a camp counselor in Day Camp before going to receive my undergraduate and graduate degrees in the field of recreation.  I have been a member of The Farm family since the summer of 2006 and couldn’t imagine a better place to work.  I have been given the opportunity to bring my love and passion for event planning to each and every program at The Farm.  I hope you will join me at some of the various programs throughout the year.
