Alice founded Ohio Valley Food Connection in 2015 because she wants to conveniently connect local food producers and buyers. Alice spends most of her time meeting with chefs, households, and farmers to find out what would best help them in their day to day tasks.
In 2005, after a career in Finance and Strategic Planning, Alice starting looking into the economics of rural communities, land use planning and the future of agriculture near metropolitan areas. She co-founded North County Preservation to help federate issue analysis and recommendations on those topics. She then spent three + years as Executive Director of Future Harvest CASA (Chesapeake Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture), promoting local sustainable farming, and creating connections between consumers, businesses and local farmers in the Chesapeake Bay area. She also served on the Board of the Maryland Agricultural Resource Council.
