Life on Earth | March 2016 Newsletter

“It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one destiny, affects all indirectly.” —Martin Luther King, Jr.

Our staff team is growing, thanks in part to a generous capacity-building grant from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust, and we are delighted to announce three recent additions to our team!

Jenna Barrett joined us as Development Manager on March 1. Jenna, a veteran of the Seattle non-profit scene and a recent transplant to Whidbey, is already head over heels in love with this island and fully engaged in our Institute work.

Hilary Wilson, former board member, has transitioned into a contract position as a development consultant. In this new role, she’ll work closely with Jenna and other team members to build a robust development office to support our work in the world.

Timothy Hull grew up here and knows this land deeply. He’s stewarded the 30 acre Legacy Forest for quite some time, and in his new staff role he’s bringing additional energy to support land care projects throughout the 100 acres.

Look for profiles of each of these staff members in the coming months, and don’t hesitate to drop by the offices to meet them face-to-face!
