Conservation Montgomery is recognizing Caroline as a tireless educator and powerful advocate for farmers and communities in and around our Agricultural Reserve. With climate change now a high priority on our local agenda, we are recognizing Caroline as a key ally who works every day to protect farms, forests, and park lands in Montgomery County.
Here at MCA we know her to be the driving force behind many of our most successful initiatives: Re-Leaf the Reserve, Land Link, the Producers Listserve and many more along with her more informal bringing together of community stakeholders. Where others see challenges she sees opportunity and cheerfully marshalls local resources to solve problems. Her hand at the tiller has given the organization both its tenacity and heart.
Our shortened mission statement at MCA is "we connect" Caroline is the glue that brings voices into the conservation and stakeholders around the table to protect farms in Montgomery County.
