Food, Water, & Sanitation

Led by Mark Arvidson (Army, Retired—Emergency Management and Disaster Preparedness) and Thomas Goodham (owner, Trinity Bamboo), this team is focused on both food and water/sanitation.

Food: creating a collaborative community-wide network to grow on the island the maximum amount of food possible, preserving and sharing it in good times and emergency times. Think farms + food bank = food security. To learn more about our joint venture with Friends of the Farms, visit the Bainbridge Food Forest page today!

Water/Sanitation: creating and encouraging the implementation of best practices for potable water storage and sanitation throughout the island with both residents and organizations.

The team also includes Heather Burger (Friends of the Farms), Maria Metzler (Helpline House), Christian Berg (COBI Water Resources Technician), Becca Hanson (Designer Extraordinaire of Zoos, aquariums, and more), Morgan Houk (Friends of the Farms), Jen Prodzinski (Islandwood), and Larry Lofgren (attorney).
