Programmes manager; day to day of caritas projects ( office of social services development & peace)dealing in sustainable agriculture, peace& justice, water and sanitation, farmer associations and bulk marketing.
Currently, I am a North American delegate serving on the Women's Committee with the World Farmer Organization. We work to support and advocate on behalf of farmers worldwide and ensure women are part of the conversation/solutions to global food security, nutrition. I am participating in this panel as a beginning woman farmer and farm owner of 5 years and in support of the WFO Women's Committee which the National Farmers Union in the U.S. is a member.
I also farm, facilitate, and love fruit. I co-own Hilltop Community Farm, a small-scale, diversified CSA operation in Wisconsin, USA and extend my work and love of farming at home and abroad, supporting farmer to farmer gatherings, hosting delegations in Senegal, Nicaragua, Zambia and recently Argentina. It is an honor to participate in this forum, and thank you very much for convening the space for this important work.
