I came to Environmental Initiative and the Midwest Row Crop Collaborative (MRCC) with a background in climate resilience-building, rural organizing, and public engagement. I grew up in a rural community in southeastern Minnesota; I have strong connections to local farms and a deep appreciation for our natural resources. I firmly believe our food systems can provide solutions to some of our most pressing environmental issues.
Working as the program manager for the MRCC is an amazing opportunity. Through the Collaborative, our members are able to demonstrate that our food systems can indeed offer solutions! Leveraging the expertise, knowledge, and creativity of our members we can find solutions to protect our water, build healthier soils, increase climate health, and support farm families.
I have come to appreciate the open collaboration, pursuit of new perspectives, and focused investment in relationships that is so crucial to MRCC’s work. My work is extremely exciting because the Midwest Row Crop Collaborative functions at a systems level, making the potential for impact highly possible!
