Molly Sowash is the new Sustainable Agriculture Program Manager. She began with Rural Action in 2019 as an AmeriCorps member, serving two terms with the Sustainable Agriculture program after moving home to Ohio. In 2016 she graduated from Macalester College with a Bachelor’s degree in English (Creative Writing) with a minor in Religious Studies.

After college, Molly worked with youth on urban farms with Youth Farm and taught food education in the Minnesota public schools with Midwest Food Connection. During summers, she worked on produce and cattle farms that were the inspiration for her current operation raising grass-fed beef on her family’s property in Athens, Ohio. Outside of work and farming, Molly makes jewelry, tends a large garden, plays music, and writes poetry.
