In our first episode with two guests, Ryan and Mark have a conversation with Sarna Salzman, Executive Directive at SEEDS and Board Member, Ed Smith.

SEEDS Ecology & Education Centers is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization established to implement local solutions to global issues at the intersection of ecology, education, and design. Through its staff, volunteers, and community partners, SEEDS makes a positive direct impact on hundreds of people each day. SEEDS work focuses on place-based activities that regenerate habitat, prevent carbon emissions, develop talent pipelines for green industries, and invest in the next generations.

Sarna Salzman builds synergy within SEEDS and in the wider community through robust evaluation techniques and the forging of innovate partnerships. Internally, she is responsible for the daily operations of SEEDS and is unafraid to experiment with pioneering management and adaptive leadership techniques. Her focus is on using a triple-bottom-line approach toward building community self-reliance. She has a BA in Anthropology and Sociology from Kalamazoo College in Michigan and an MS in Community Development from the University of California at Davis. Does she enjoy studying behavioral economics and ecological literacy in her spare time? Absolutely!

Ed Smith is a retired management consulting executive with over 30 years of B2B client experiences focusing on organizational change management, culture alignment and innovative learning solutions. Ed has served on boards with his parish and two local veteran-focused non-profits in strategy, as well as sponsor and donor development. He is excited to help SEEDS Ecology & Education Centers build on its trusted collaborations, successful offerings and find ways to smartly increase its reach and impact both in Michigan and the Great Lakes region.
