Giving a voice to local businesses, activists, foodies, and passionate localists like myself is my most rewarding work. Whether you want to start a localist business, grow an economic development program in your organization, connect healthy economies to wellness through a campaign for better access to local food, convene a group of businesses into a localist network, or change a policy to make local purchasing of products easier in your company or city government, I can help you. Integral to my consulting work – whether with local business owners, nonprofit professionals, or government officials – is convening diverse groups across sectors to facilitate thoughtful, useful dialogues and engage community members in the planning and participation of their local economy.

Here’s what I do:

Business Consulting for Localists and Social Entrepreneurs

– walking you through the chaos of business planning and creating a localist business for greater community impact

Nonprofit Programmatic Consulting

– your guide on project development and implementation within the localism system (project development and planning, implementation for local economic impact, especially in food systems: hubs, commercial kitchens, campaigns, business network development)

Governmental agencies and department consulting

– your localist expert in project planning (various departments: Planning, Economic Development, Community Development, Policy Councils, Commissions, etc)

Retreats and Classes

– Your localist tribe awaits.
