Farewell to our Executive Director!

Dear Nourish Friends and Supporters,

I am sad and excited to announce that this will be my last year with Nourish. I am sad because I will miss all the friends and good food connections I’ve made along the way. I am excited for my next chapter that may involve something with engineering, planning, food, sustainability or all the above. I am also excited for Nourish’s next chapter.

I have gained so much from my nearly 6 years with Nourish. I learned about our community, the impact of nonprofits, best practices in management, and so much more. I will be forever grateful.

During my time with Nourish, we:

  • became an official 501(c)(3) organization;

  • created infrastructure and a team of good-food professionals across the community and in schools;

  • increased our programming to more schools;

  • moved from shared space to leased space and now to our first permanent home at the Miley Barn in Sheboygan Falls. 

Today, Nourish has:

  • its own beautiful land to grow food on and teach others how to grow, use and enjoy fresh foods; 

  • a renovated barn with event rental space; 

  • a capital campaign in progress to build a community kitchen and create several acres of educational gardens along with a group of amazing and talented staff;

  • a great Board of Directors, chartered committees, and two managers as part of the Nourish leadership team.

It’s time for a breath of fresh air and energy to take the Nourish vision and mission to the next level to improve the health of Sheboygan County.

I plan to stay on into fall and will make sure the next Nourish Executive Director and our team have a smooth transition.

Our Board of Directors will be accepting applications for the Nourish Executive Director position until August 16, 2019. Click this link for more information.
