BOARD OF DIRECTORS
As board members of Share the Harvest Farm, we all wear many hats and share a common dedication to unite our community in the interest of health and well-being. We invite everyone with interest in the same to join us!
Co-Founder & Treasurer
Every farm has a founder, many farms have boards of directors, but no other farm will ever have a John. During the farm’s early days, John could be found in the fields on his hands and knees seven days a week, or making countless food pantry deliveries in the back of his own vehicle. He was the driving force behind our fundraising efforts, our mission’s most passionate advocate, and the person who always encouraged us to do more, to do it better, and to help feed as many people as possible.
His energy was contagious and his vision was simple: that everyone in our community should have access to fresh, nutritious food.
We dedicate this season to his memory.
We are fortunate to have a growing network of support from our community, and recently several prominent leaders have joined our advisory board. Together, we look forward to expanding our charitable outreach.
