What Josie Enjoys About Sharing Our Roots

I love that my work here is kinesthetic, holistic and includes an element of creativity. I love building partnerships with local farmers and organizations, as well as with local food businesses for relationship-based marketing. I’m also most excited about long-term visioning, economic modeling, and the farm as a testing ground for regenerative agriculture.
