TUTTLE, N.D. — The Foundation for Agricultural and Rural Resource Management and Sustainability (FARRMS) has recently relocated its business office from Medina to the former Tuttle School building in Tuttle. Additionally, a reorganization of the non-profit is underway in an effort to focus more resources on growing program management and strategic planning. Former Executive Director Eden McLeod will be taking on the role of program director. The program director will be responsible for the implementation of the programs and projects as set by the FARRMS Board of Directors. McLeod will continue to serve as interim executive director until a new executive director is hired. FARRMS also plans to add administrative support staff to the team to support the growing need to handle the day-to-day functions of FARRMS.
“FARRMS is restructuring due to diversification and growth of our programs,” FARRMS Board President Keith Knudson said. “We have experienced new growth in our programs in the past two years and now it is time to add staff to help us meet the educational needs of farmers and ranchers.”
FARRMS was founded in 2000 to address the specific educational needs of organic producers and processors and to promote sustainable rural development in the Medina community and beyond. With the move to Tuttle, FARRMS looks to help the school become an educational center for local foods in North Dakota.
