Courtney will provide a brief history of the Wittenbach Wege Center, the role of native plants and food production, the importance of healthy ecosystems and biodiversity, and the role of native perennial crops in the future of sustainable and regenerative agriculture.
Courtney Cheers loves helping people explore, discover, and get their hands in the soil—OUTSIDE!

Courtney has been involved in programming at the WWC since 2001 and has held the position of Director since 2014. She studied at Iowa State University and the University of Montana.
