Just like many CNG farms, Certified Naturally Grown runs a tight ship to keep our grassroots certification program thriving. We’re proud to announce the addition of three new teammates. Following the departure of Hannah and Ariel, our staff has recently grown from four to a whopping five people! As the farm season starts to wind down, our busy season approaches. We look forward to connecting with you during the winter months!
Read on to meet the new faces joining Alice and Aly at CNG:
If you applied for certification between 2011-2018, it was Hannah who walked you through the application process, offering advice and answering questions about CNG standards every step of the way. In fact, she reviewed more than 2,000 applications during her time with CNG! She also helped to draft standards for new CNG certification programs in both aquaponics and mushroom production. More recently she helped to revise our inspection worksheets to provide more guidance on best practices, as part of our Inspections 2.0 initiative.
After serving as our certification specialist for six years, Hannah is leaving CNG to dive deeper into her PhD thesis on the history of natural resources management in Minneapolis. In celebration of our longest-serving staff person (other than our director!), we interviewed Hannah about her experience here at CNG and the aspects of the job that she'll never forget. We won't forget you, either, Hannah! Thanks for all you've done.Read more
