New Executive Director Position Filled

Hello LAFS Subscribers! My name is Sarah Petznick, and I have been hired to work for the Lillooet Agriculture and Food Society as their new Executive Director.  I will be taking over from Vivian Birch-Jones and Marianne Gagnon in the coming months, and look forward to meeting those of you whom I haven’t yet! I moved to Lillooet this March, from the coast where I was working most recently for Emergency Management British Columbia.  I have spent the last six years there, five of them studying Sustainable Agriculture at UBC in Vancouver.  My degree is a Bachelor of Science in Global Resource Systems which falls under what is now the Faculty of Land and Food Systems (and used to be the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences/Faculty of Agriculture). I grew up on a farm in the Shuswap, where my Mum bred and raised Welsh Cobs.  We did our own hay, and always had neighbours with fresh eggs and veggies for us. I am very excited to be a part of the LAFS community, and to be working towards a vision of a strong agricultural future for the Lillooet region.  I do think that Guaranteed Rugged or not, we’re definitely BC’s little nugget.  😉
