Food security in small-holder coffee communities, agricultural resilience to climate change

Contact Information

Over the past 15 years, Martha has been all over the map working in large urban areas of the US and small coffee-growing communities in Latin America. Despite varied locations and projects, she maintains a consistent belief that community members are the best experts for determining sustainable approaches to addressing their own challenges. Martha has programmatic experience with public health, housing, food systems, climate change and food security, and within these areas has developed expertise in research, training and facilitation, project design, implementation, management and evaluation. In the lab, Martha is involved in projects focused on food security in coffee growing communities and the Vermont Agricultural Resilience in a Changing Climate initiative.
