Mary Roberts Board Member
Mary Roberts is owner and manager of Windcrest Farm, a USDA Certified Organic farm and greenhouse in Monroe, NC.
After twenty years as a corporate instructor and project manager, Mary turned her passion for growing plants organically into a business that supplies market farmers and home gardeners with over 300,000 heirloom vegetable, flower, herb, and fruit plants each year as well as growing fresh produce for local farmers markets and restaurants.
All of her plants are USDA Certified Organic: grown from untreated, non-GMO seeds in mineral-rich potting mixes and amendments, all of which meet the National Organics Program (NOP) standard.
In addition to growing specialty and hard-to-find plant varieties, Mary also conducts a wide-ranging selection of on-farm classes to help beginning to advanced farmers and gardeners learn the principles and practices of sustainable agriculture.
