Food Resilience

Led by Heather Burger (Friends of the Farms) and Mark Arvidson (Army, Retired—Emergency Management and Disaster Preparedness) this team is focused on 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. The team includes Maria Metzler (Helpline House), Christian Berg (COBI Water Resources Technician), Christy Carr (COBI Natural Resource Planner), Leslee Dixon (food consultant), Ann Lovejoy (public/private sustainable gardening educator), and Thomas Goodham (owner, Trinity Bamboo).
