Margaret’s extensive experience in creating for profit and nonprofit businesses (including landscape architecture, a theatre company, an award winning jam and pickle line and the Cobblestone Farmers Market) has led her to consulting on adaptive reuse development projects across the country that embrace essential food components such as kitchen incubators/accelerators and food markets, each responding to the need for job opportunity and greater access to good food.

Through these two foundation projects, Beta Verde is dedicated to removing common barriers for food entrepreneurs in order to support and nurture the economic growth of 60+ small food and agriculture businesses in our region.
