March Newsletter

Farms at Work March Newsletter

March is a time of seed starting, calving, lambing, sap boiling, and so much more.  As Spring approaches we look forward to the season ahead and the many ways Farms at Work plans to support agriculture in this region!

Welcome New Executive Director to Farms at Work

Last year, when Pat Learmonth stepped down as Farms At Work's Executive Director, we knew we would have a tough time filling those shoes. But we've done it!

The Board at Farms at Work is very excited to welcome Heather Ray to the role of Executive Director. An experienced community leader deeply rooted in agriculture, Heather is looking forward to connecting with the Farms at Work community in 2023, an exciting new year for the organization.

Learn more about Heather through her staff bio here.
