“To Be Determined”

Speaker, Cultivating a Collaborative Culture with Vendors break-out session.

Stan is the Director of Surry County Parks & Recreation, the Director for Surry County’s Farmers Market and Breyon Pierce is the Market Manager. A veteran of the US Army for 13 years and a government contractor, he has studied at various universities and is currently working towards his degree in Psychology. Stan has recently completed his second year as the Market Director and Surry’s Market is working hard to better the citizens, through healthy eating.  During this past year, we established  a small community garden to offer fresh vegetable to the seniors in the community.  Next year we plan to extend that garden size to two acres, thereby providing our seniors with fresh produce and bringing more produce to our Farmer’s Market.  Though I am not as experienced as many of our board members, I understand the power in networking and I don’t think “outside of the box”.  THERE IS NO BOX!
