Give a Warm Welcome!

Please join us in welcoming our newest staff person to the Southern SAWG team! Pamela Kingfisher started work with us in February as a Program Specialist. A Cherokee citizen, born to the bird clan, Pam lives and works on her grandmother’s Indian allotment land in N.E. Oklahoma, growing organic food and working to preserve and utilize medicinal plants.

Pam will be working from her home office, just 1 ½ hours from Fayetteville, and will be responsible for program implementation, delivery and reporting on various programs (South lead for National Farm to School, coordinating NRCS trainings in MS, AL, AR, LA, etc.), along with coordinating our online and social media communications. Pam is an experienced program manager (evaluation & diagnostics), trainer, facilitator, media liaison, FCC licensed communicator, and fundraiser (planning and training), as well as a photographer, potter, and quilter. Pam volunteers in her community working with the Cherokee County Food Policy Council and serves on two national philanthropic boards.                                      

We are very excited to include her wealth of experience and skills in our toolbox of resources we offer to our broader community at Southern SAWG.
