Michigan State Univeristy Organic Specialist

East Lansing, Michigan

As part of Michigan State University and the C.S. Mott Sustainable Food System team I serve Michigan Organic Vegetable and Crop producers to obtain technical infromaiton and resources to improve their production system, connect to potential markets, faciliate with organic certification and connect researchers to areas of research needed by organic producers. To serve these growers with information, resources and guidance I organize workshops, sessions, and technical resources to address issues posed by the vegetable and crop organic farmers. Key areas of focus include; soil building, benefical insects, cover crops, sourcing and highlighting the need of organic grain for animal producers, and certification and the process.
