V.I. Good Food Executive Director Attends Inaugural White House Climate Summit

Virgin Islands Good Food Executive Director Sommer Sibilly-Brown attended the “Inaugural White House Summit on Building Climate Resilient Communities” Sept. 28 and joined representatives from 25 states, tribal lands and territories to share insights, knowledge, and strategies for mitigating the impacts of climate change on local community’s infrastructure, and ecosystems, the Virgin Islands Good Food Coalition announced in a recent press release.
