Welcome

We're Glad You're Here

Hi everyone,

After a lifetime working in the communications field, from broadcasting to academia and from government to the private sector, I know how important it is to advance Fresh New England's mission of "promoting and uniting the New England food community and inspiring people everywhere to love and support local food." We need an active an engaged community to promote local businesses and ideas that keep us healthy, protect and preserve our land and environment, encourage equality and diversity, and strengthen our regional economy.

To this end, we invite you to explore New England's first online digital platform uniting the New England food community and connecting it with the rest of the world.

I'm proud to introduce a few of the people who are working to make this happen. Please take a moment to read about their work.

If you support local food and our mission, please consider joining as a Member or Friend today.

Together we can work to build a better, stronger and more resilient New England food community.

Enjoy the platform!

A firm believer that film is one of the last mediums where you can trap people in a room and change the way they view the world, she's always on the lookout for stories that push through the divisiveness of mainstream media and get lost in the nuance of the in-between. 
 
Alex has worked with organizations like PRX, the Camden International Film Festival,  Atlantic Public Media, the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, and the Maine Department of Justice.She's currently based in Portland, ME (though often travels for projects) and is a frequent collaborator with Timber & Frame Media and Seedlight Pictures, two Maine production companies behind the upcoming feature-length documentary, The Mountain & the Magic City.
