Organic farming nonprofit names new director

Thursday, September 22, 2016

John Mesko has been hired to head the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES), a nonprofit in Spring Valley that is nationally recognized for hosting the country’s largest annual organic farming conference.

Mesko currently is the executive director of the Sustainable Farming Association (SFA) in Minnesota. He will join the MOSES staff at the end of this month.

“The players, pressures and policies within America’s food system are changing rapidly, and the ever-increasing demand for certified organic foods is both opportunity and challenge,” said Sylvia Burgos Toftness, president of the MOSES Board of Directors. “We believe John brings the experience and vision needed to build on MOSES’s strengths, keep organic standards high, continue to provide excellent programming and reach out to all growers seeking environmental and economic sustainability.”
