Outreach & Office Manager, Aldermere Farm
Region: Southern Maine
“When one thinks of a land trust, woods and beaches might come to mind. But someone standing in line to get their weekly bag of groceries from a food pantry might not. Sometimes the impact we make can be difficult to measure, but when I help deliver boxes of produce to Come Spring Food Pantry the impact of MCHT's work is undeniable.”
Joelle helps manage events and programming at Aldermere Farm and Erickson Fields preserves, which are home to several youth agricultural programs, including the Aldermere Achievers 4-H Club and the Teen Ag Program. Every year more than 15,000 pounds of produce from Erickson goes to local food pantries.
