Gray Harris

Senior Program Director, Food Systems & Natural Resources

How did you first become connected with WNC? I visited with my girls when they were young, but it was when I got to know current board President, Fiona Wilson, when I was introduced to all the exciting developments happening on the farm, and was invited to sit on the board.

How do you hope to best contribute to WNC’s development through your tenure on the Board? I love strategic planning that leads to action on the ground, and WNC has plenty of that going on!  In particular, I hope to assist in building out the organic dairy program to be a premier national training site for the next generation of organic dairy farms in Maine and the northeast.

What is your favorite thing about WNC? The extraordinary energy embodied by the staff and the board to make things happen and move things along.  The work of building a robust, resilient and regenerative food system is tough, and the work of the long game.  It’s a privilege to work with such intelligent and thoughtful leaders dedicated to making that goal a reality.
