February 19: Baptism by Snow! (Introducing the New Team)
Tracy and I wanted to introduce ourselves to you all, virtually, and make sure that you have our contact information moving forward. We look forward to working with you all to continue the great work that Andy has done. As Andy mentioned last week, I will be coordinating the operations and logistics, but the trucking (pick-ups and drop-offs) will be handled by Tracy Lake.

Hopefully the transition will be a smooth one (if the weather would cooperate!), but we appreciate your patience as we get up to speed. I would like to catch up with each of you, by phone at least, over the next couple weeks. Please feel free to contact me any time that works for you. We are always open to feedback, positive and constructive, and would love to hear from you.

More about our team:

Sara grew up in Central Maine and has spent much of her life in New England. While she’s always enjoyed eating, her real interest in food developed when her eyes were first opened in college, as to where the food she was eating actually came from. Since then she has become passionate about supporting and developing local, sustainable food systems.

She has spent years working for non-profits on a range of social and environmental issues, as well as obtaining a masters degree at UVM in natural resource planning. She has recently returned to New England after four and a half years in New Zealand, where she was working with a diverse community to restore a local urban stream and reconnect with their local environment. She has spent the past three months coordinating the Monadnock Menus program, modeled after Windham Farm & Food, operating in Cheshire County, NH. She is extremely excited about working with you to build upon the success of Windham Farm and Food in 2014. She currently lives on a farm in Putney with her husband and two awesome dogs.

Although Tracy grew up a 'townie' in the village of Grafton, Vermont, where he currently resides, his grandparents were Vermont farmers. Firsthand experience of farm life was introduced at 4 A.M. barn duty at the Putney School. The son of a logger, he began working in the woods soon after returning home from college and learned an appreciation for selective cut and woodland management from his father. Tracy's son Hayden is a forester. Currently working for Harlow Farm in Westminster, he enjoys learning modern organic farming methods and uses his experience to assist his daughter Norah on her Sweetland Farm in Norwich.
