Josh has spent the last 22 years helping people find meaning and connection through food and farming. From 2008-2012 he served as president of Slow Food USA, the US branch of the global Slow Food movement. Before his work at Slow Food, Josh was a founding director of the Yale Sustainable Food Project which built an organic farm on campus to bring local, sustainable food to the University. Josh has been listed as one of the seven most powerful voices in the food movement by Forbes and Michael Pollan. Now he is working with friends and neighbors to develop Harlem Valley Homestead. Josh lives in the Harlem Valley, less than a mile from the farm, where he grows, forages, catches or hunts most of what he eats.
On a personal note: A few of my passions are
growing, cooking and sharing good food. Playing old music with old friends. Fly tying and fishing. Bowhunting for deer. Sharing the things I love with others.
