Margaret believes everyone benefits when we take on troubling issues in our most challenged communities. She came of age in Detroit questioning systems that offer abundant opportunities to some, while depriving others of resources to provide for themselves and their families. She sought answers by studying American Public Affairs at Michigan State University, followed by an MBA from the University of Michigan. After spending 25 years working in community development in Detroit and Providence, Margaret knows that she really has found her true calling. By developing local food systems that work for everyone, Margaret creates positive change in public health, youth and community opportunity, the environment and civic pride. When not engaged in such heady tasks, she likes to raise babies, sweep, and do the laundry. She also serves on the RI Land Trust Council.
