Leonardo Academy has announced the new officers of the National Sustainable Agriculture Standards Committee. They are Brian McElroy of Driscoll’s Strawberry Associates, Chair; Mike Wanless of Tate Dog Wines, Vice Chair; Grace Gershuny of GAIA Services, Secretary; and Will Healy of Ball Horticultural Co., Vice Secretary.

Leonardo Academy also announced that Jason Wadsworth, corporate sustainability coordinator with Wegmans Food Markets, has been selected as a new member of the National Sustainable Agriculture Standards Committee in the user category. Jason brings 21 years of experience in farming and diverse work in the agricultural sector to the committee.

As previously announced, applicants are currently being recruited for the open seats in the Producer, User and General Interest categories of the committee. Individuals or representatives of entities that produced, process or use agricultural goods are encouraged to apply.

The National Sustainable Agriculture Standards Committee meeting has been rescheduled to March 2011. This schedule changed has been made for two reasons: (1) to provide more time for the subcommittees to develop draft materials for the committee to review and vote on at this meeting and (2) to provide time to bring the new committee members who are currently being selected up to speed on the standards process and material before the meeting. The location and specific dates are currently being secured.

To receive an application for membership on the Standards Committee, contact Jennifer Trucks at jennifer@leonardoacademy.org or 608.280.0255, or click here.

Applications must be submitted by 12 pm CST on Dec. 15, 2010.
