We were excited to welcome 5 new members this fall to our Board of Directors. This new cohort includes Deb Kierstead, from MCCA, Genevieve Saldibar from Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, Valeria La Rosa from Lifetime Foundation, Shanna Woods from Neighborhood House (and former Youth Farmer), and Alex Lange, a teacher and partner at Nellie Stone Johnson Community School in Hawthorne/North Minneapolis. We are excited to have such a talented and dedicated group of board members. You can learn more about each of them at our Board of Directors page on our website.
At our November board meeting, board members took time to connect with staff and learn about each other, their history’s and connection to Youth Farm, what excites them outside of Youth Farm, and of course, share in some good produce from our farms.
