MOFGA hired Nicolas Lindholm as its organic marketing and business specialist. Lindholm has been a MOFGA volunteer, apprentice, board member and organic farm inspector and is a long-time certified organic grower. He has 28 years of direct work experience in managing and operating various agricultural businesses, including Blue Hill Berry Company and Hackmatack Farm. He started the Maine Seed Saving Network and wrote about seed saving for The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener.

Our new operations director, Anna Miller, grew up in Maine and Massachusetts, attending the Common Ground Country Fair each fall and spending much of her childhood canoeing, camping and exploring the outdoors throughout the Northeast and Canada. She attended the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, earning her master’s with honors in human geography, with a focus on sustainable development and agriculture and the barriers to accessing healthy food systems among local communities. In 2012 Anna returned to Norway, Maine, briefly volunteering in the local community gardens and farms. She then moved to New York City where she worked for the British Foreign Office for over seven years, managing its New York operations, including finance, HR, IT and estates projects. Miller says she is thrilled to return to Maine to join and support the vital work of MOFGA as the new operations director, and she looks forward to getting to know the community and exploring the beautiful state.

Steve Mozes, our development coordinator, left us to spend more time with his family. The MOFGA team misses him and wishes him the best.
