I am a horticulturist and Extension Specialist with responsibilities including the design and implementation of sustainable, resilient vegetable growing systems. I work alone and with many public and private professionals, including farmers, and consumers. I am pleased with the emergence of this Center for three reasons. First, diversity and a strong and growing track record of successful trans-disciplinary work prepare The OSU and Ohio to address food issues that affect all global citizens. Second, the Center will tangibly increase our long-term ability to satisfy The OSU's research, teaching and service charter. And, finally, the Center will broaden and strengthen collaborations and resources critical to my work.
