High impact consulting services for private and public sector organizations to develop and advance sustainable food and farm systems.
I balance collaboration with leadership to create specific deliverables based on your timeline and your needs.
SUSTAINABLE SUPPLY CHAINS
Whether you are building new supply chains or looking to improve existing ones, it’s critical to develop strategies and implementation programs that energize internal teams around shared goals as well as lay-out clear, attainable, and measurable objectives for your supply chain partners. A thorough assessment of how you operate and collaborate combined with your assets, current relationships and market drivers, I will work with you to design a balanced, dynamic, and ambitious program to advance your sustainability goals, reduce risk, grow supply and enhance your vision of where you want to be in the future.
Labels, certifications, and audits are important. But do they tell your story? Do they back up your claims? Sustainability metrics that allow you and your supply chain partners to easily track, analyze, and improve on your specific goals – soil health, climate change resilience, financial well-being – will drastically improve your ability to measure success, understand the gaps, and design corrective action plans. Metrics will help sourcing teams track success and help marketing teams tell your story.
ORGANIC PRODUCTION SYSTEMS
From improving soil health to analyzing local and regional market drivers, I will help you create holistic programs that can be implemented and achieved. I provide a wide range of services for establishing, growing, and innovating commercial and non-profit farms. My specialty is the start-up phase of direct-market horticulture operations for private and public landowners.
Highly effective project management is a game-changer. Food value chains are complex, fast-moving, and engage with a diverse range of stakeholders. My style balances collaboration with leadership to design and implement strategic change grounded in deliverables, milestones, and best use of you and your staff’s time.
