Special Thanks

Henry Hartley
Local photographer with a fine eye for nature in all its splendid details is now a contributor to our website…take a peek at the marvelous close-up of the feathers on the slide show.  Now that’s something to crow about.

Kai Hagen
Kai is a renaissance man…naturalist, writer, advocate, politician and photographer.  The sweeping sky shot in the slide show…that’s his.

Hillary Schwab
Thanks  to Hilary Schwab, local photographer extraordinaire, who has graciously contributed many new photos that we will use in the Ag Resource guide re-print and the web site.  The beautiful winter scene on our fundraising appeal is one of her shots!

Lee Langstaff
Many of the wonderful photos on our website and in our materials have been donated by Lee. Her photos of the Agricultural Reserve and Montgomery’s rural areas really capture its distinctive beauty, and we thank her for her generosity!

Niki Lewis
Niki has been a tremendous help with the Local Food Initiative, providing research, vision, and extensive energy toward promoting local food production and markets.  We thank her for bridging the area’s farmers and consumers and supporting the local economies.

Woody Woodroof
We thank Woody for his energy and guidance toward MCA efforts in CSA information gathering and also for his vision in promoting the Ag Reserve as home to vital and productive local farms.

Whole Foods Market Montgomery County
The Whole Foods Market locations in Montgomery County, including Kentlands, Rockville, Bethesda, & Silver Spring stores, have kindly contributed to the MCA with fundraisers. They continue to be generous with their support and commitment to local food and the local community, and we thank them for that.

Dave Bowen, One Yard at a Time Landscaping
MCA has office space…Dave Bowen saw our need for outdoor help and…generous and dedicated to the Reserve, Dave is one of the good ones.

Cheryl Kollin, Full Plate Ventures
What do you say about someone whose passion for our healthy local food system translates into a huge commitment of time and expertise helping local producers, Bethesda Green and MCA.  We are fortunate to have her volunteering for now and are working to identify and gather the resources to properly support her work!

We also want to thank MCA’s many supporters, who make all of this possible!
