Behind the Scenes with our Board Chairs (Part Two!)

Behind the Scenes with our Board Chairs (Part Two!)

We recently published  a post by Steve Richards about his time as chair of our board of directors. Now, our incoming board chair, Charlotte Dougherty, chimes in to describe her experience with Sustainable Harvest International and her vision for our future. Charlotte writes:

On that first night of my 2011 visit, I listened to the laughter, squeals, and giggles of the children and their parents as we all settled down to sleep. I was witnessing real improvement, real change in people’s lives as a direct result of working with Sustainable Harvest International.”

In this two-part series, our outgoing board chair, Stephen Richards, and his successor, Charlotte Dougherty, shine a light on the past and future of our board of directors. In Part One, Steve illustrates defining moments and landmark initiatives from his tenure as chair. Stay tuned for Part Two, when Charlotte will fill us in on where we’re going next!

Steve writes, “Through my involvement with those organizations, I had visited and worked in over 60 countries and enjoyed learning about other parts of the world. Most importantly, I was in a position where I could have an impact on people in desperate situations.”

Super Saturday at Oak Park

Super Saturday at Oak Park

We hold an annual Sustainability Fair on the Saturday before the Super Bowl, so we call it Super Saturday. That way everyone remembers when it is. It is a huge community event where we showcase our environmental efforts and invite people from the community in to learn about environmental stewardship and connecting with our local ecosystem.
