Ms. Faye Jones

Profile:

Ms. Jones was the original employee of this nonprofit, and worked for the previous organization that ultimately reorganized as MOSES in 1999. She has managed most critical MOSES activities for the last 14 years. In the last decade she has worked with the MOSES Board of Directors to create a working logic model strategic plan and to hire talented people to create a dynamic team.

Leadership Statement:

MOSES is a thriving and growing nonprofit that is here to help farmers thrive. What we do best is educate and inspire farmers to successfully use organic and sustainable farming methods. We see a world where this will become the norm and what we now know as “traditional” petrochemical based agriculture will be seen as unusual. MOSES is part of a larger effort to bring attention to the benefits of healthy food and farming. This movement is made up of many related movements that have been growing energetically in the past 40 years: environmental groups, habitat preservation groups (including hunting and fishing groups), “buy local” efforts and organizations, the farmer and food cooperative movement, and the “good food revolution.” MOSES programs are directed toward farmer needs for on the ground agricultural practices that help farmers succeed. Our work is where the hoe hits the earth, and the seeds are planted to feed the rest of the movement’s goals I am proud that we are firmly mission driven. We ask ourselves on a regular basis “How does this serve our sustainable and organic farmers?” Our organization is farmer led. Most of us are farmers and our bylaws require a board make up of at least 50% organic farmers. Our board and our staff get our mission at a core level. Our mission is: “MOSES educates, inspires, and empowers famers to thrive in a sustainable, organic system of agriculture.” We know we need the support of others who understand that farming without chemicals has a benefit that goes far beyond one farmer’s fence. We hope you will be inspired to join us. I welcome your calls at any time if you find you have a question: 715-778-5775. Thank you, Faye Jones, Executive Director Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (“ MOSES”)

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

At its heart, MOSES is an organization by farmers for farmers. What we do best is educate and inspire farmers to successfully use organic and sustainable farming methods. We have learned that farmers learn best from other farmers and we work hard to bring the best information, resources and support to farmers who are already growing organically AND to those who are just beginning to consider making a change to more sustainable farming methods.
