​Morgan Anderson is a Produce Safety Technician located at the Ottawa Conservation District. She works with produce farmers in Ottawa, Kent, Barry, Eaton, Ingham, Clinton, Ionia, and Montcalm counties. She serves as a confidential, free, voluntary resource for anything related to produce safety and quality needs, and works with producers to interpret food safety standards and figure out what works best for their operation. Before working with the District, she worked with various organizations like the Campus Farm at the University of Michigan, Trout Unlimited, and the University Sustainable Food Program. Morgan has a B.A. in Environmental Studies with a minor in public policy. At school, she quickly found herself circling back to agriculture and its intersections with the environment, community, justice, and local food systems. She has a deep passion and love for learning, expanding her experiences, and engaging in conversations related to these topics. Morgan grew up and still lives on her family farm in the Kent City/Sparta area. Outside of work she enjoys hiking, photography, crafting, and spending time with loved ones.
