Halley to Serve as Interim Director of MOSES
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/18/2016
The Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service has hired an interim executive director as it searches for a replacement for long-time leader Faye Jones, who resigned last month after 24 years of service. Linda Halley has been chosen to run the
day-to-day operations of the Spring Valley-based organization.
Halley recently served as the interim farm director for the Minnesota Food Association. Prior to that, she managed Gardens of Eagan, a 125-acre vegetable and herb farm in Northfield, Minnesota.
A former MOSES board member, Halley has been an organic farmer for more than 25 years.
"We are very fortunate to have Linda Halley in the interim executive director position," said MOSES Board President Sylvia Burgos Toftness. "Not only does she know our organization and staff, she brings the organic farming know-how, deep managerial
experience, and solid financial acumen we need at this juncture. The board will work closely with Linda as we launch a national search for a permanent executive director."
The MOSES board is currently conducting a national search for a permanent director. They hope to have that person in place within six months.
