OUR LEADERSHIP

Our Leadership structure is comprised of several guiding committees. The Advisory Committee is a dedicated group of volunteers who oversee the organizational strategy, budget planning and human resources. They guide our mission and vision, and work similarly to a board of directors.

Our Incubator Farm Committee meets quarterly and advises on our Incubator Program planning and structure, support for the farmers, and relationship building in the community. This group is made up of volunteers with a variety of skills related to the Farm and Incubator Program participants.

The Equity and Accountability Committee is a compensated committee made up primarily of people of color active in food and farming work locally. This committee meets quarterly to help Groundswell remain accountable to our racial and economic justice goals, in both the short and the long term.

The Development Committee, made up of volunteers and advisory board members, works to ensure strategic fundraising for the organization. This committee identifies specific potential sources of funding, sets targets, and guides action plans for staff and board to improve financial sustainability.
