Since 2017, Jimmy has overseen the growth and development of the Maine Harvest Bucks program at farmers’ markets and farm stands across Maine. For over a decade, Jimmy has pursued work experiences that entrenched him in agriculture, food systems, and community development work. Jimmy spent a year as an AmeriCorps in rural Missouri where he launched an online farmers’ market and spearheaded garden-based education programming at local schools and low-income communities. Before joining the MFFM team, he worked as a volunteer organizer and development professional at a major social services nonprofit in Portland, Oregon. Jimmy is excited to be setting his roots in Maine and helping to strengthen farmer livelihood and fresh food access for all with his role as Executive Director at MFFM.
