New Beginnings

Spring signals the best and busiest time of the year for farmers everywhere – and here at Southern SAWG it means we begin our new fiscal year as an organization. Meeting in Horn Lake MS, we welcomed five new board members to the governance team. Serving three year terms, the governance board of SSAWG guides the work and carries the history and knowledge of our region – keeping our vision and mission strong.

Please join us in welcoming: Liz Young, a Farmer from NC; Martin Richards, a recovering farmer now Executive Director from KY; Joss Mohr, an Agronomist and custom woodworker from SC; Dr. Fatemeh Malekian, a Professor from LA; and Stephan Juliusburger, a Chef Consultant from FL. With these members, ten States in the Southern Region are represented at the SSAWG board table.
