Corinne Wesh, who has been a seasonal inspector for MOFGA Certification Services, has joined MCS in a year-round capacity. “We are very excited to have her as part of the team!” says Chris Grigsby, MCS director. Wesh grew up in southern New Jersey and worked on an organic  farm in rural Pennsylvania while studying sculpture and anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Since then she has worked in and around organic agriculture while also working for a human rights NGO, as a graphic designer and as a co-owner of a collectively run bicycle shop and school in Massachusetts. She is an alum of MOFGA's journeyperson program and grows certified organic seed crops with her family at Blackbird Rise in Palermo.
