Pam Carson: "Countryside’s vision of a thriving food system brings together farmers, processors and consumers in a cooperative eco-system. Developing a leading farmers market, preserving the farms, and crafting the Countryside mission of “Connecting Food, Land and People” aptly addresses that FOOD is everyone’s business, and Countryside rightly sees the CONNECTION of Food to social, economical and environmental issues locally and beyond. This an important defining political issue of the century - as much as workers wages and climate change. As Wendell Berry said :To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival."

Douglas Katz: "The people, the programs, the beautiful land and the food production is such an important part of our community. Once we connect with the community and all of its resources, we learn how important it is to nurture and support it as much as we can. That is why I joined the board and why I continue to enjoy it so much."
Deborah Stinner, Vice Chair: "I have had a passion for this project since Darwin Kelsey first introduced me to it in 2000 and am now in my second six year term on the Board. It is the combination of love of the land (the national park) with sustainable farming as the basis of a vital community of food entrepreneurs and consumers that attracts me so much."
