From 2008-2012 Lisa facilitated the Farm, Food Safety & Conservation Network, supporting agricultural industry’s efforts to co-manage for food safety and conservation of natural resources. She has worked on watershed management projects with communities in the Pacific Northwest, the Ecuadorian Andes, and coastal North Carolina.
