MALT Has A New Executive Director

Earl’s Organic Produce has been a strong supporter of MALT(Marin Agriculture Land Trust) for many years.  MALT is a private, member-supported non-profit organization created in 1980 by a coalition of ranchers and environmentalists to permanently preserve Marin County farmland for agricultural use.  MALT eliminates the development potential on farmland through the acquisition of conservation easements in voluntary transactions with landowners.  MALT also promotes public awareness and encourages policies which support and enhance agriculture.

On March 14th, MALT celebrated the recent hiring of Executive Director Jamison Watts with a night of cocktails, hors d’ouevres and conversation at the historic Escalle Winery in Larkspur. Escalle Winery produces some of the finest Marin-grown, ultra small production Pinot Noirs and is never open to the public, so this was a very special night.

Jamison Watts has led MALT as its Executive Director since January of 2013. Prior to joining MALT, Jamison served as the Executive Director of the Northern California Regional Land Trust for six years, and as a wildlife biologist and environmental consultant for more than a decade. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Biology with an emphasis in Conservation Biology from the University of California at Davis and a master’s degree in Biological Sciences from California State University at Chico. He is a recipient of the Jack Rawlins Ecology and Conservation Award and the Research and Creativity Award, both from California State University at Chico.

MALT offers many tours and fun events throughout the year.  You can keep up with all of their events on Earl’s Events tab on Facebook.
