Mark Joseph Phillips
Consultant, educator, and writer in Great Barrington, Massachusetts
I am a independent business consultant, writer, and educator based in the Northeast US working for right livelihood and ecological restoration through food and agriculture.
As a consultant, I help businesses and projects across the food system get to the next stage of their life cycle, sometimes providing that extra little bit of capacity needed to move things forward.
As a writer and researcher, I cover the emergence of regenerative agriculture across the supply chain, with a particular interest in climate change preparedness and democratic economic models (like cooperatives in their many forms) that center people and planet over profit.
As an educator, I create and coordinate programs on food, fermentation, and the intersection of human and ecological health. I have also taught 28 hands-on workshops (and counting!) on home-scale vegetable fermentation.
