Cutting the Curd
Let’s Volunteer to Make a Better Cheese Industry
Tara Holmes from the American Cheese Society and Nicole Garrett from the Cheese Culture Coalition talk to us about volunteer opportunities at their organizations. Carlos talks about the DZTE.
Tara worked in higher education before transitioning to nonprofit management. Today, she is the executive director for the American Cheese Society. She has a B.A. in English Education from Gunnison's Western Colorado University, where she also completed coursework in outdoor leadership and ran track.
A list of committees at ACS and volunteer interest form is listed here.
Anyone who would like to volunteer for ACS in any capacity can call us at 720-328-2788, or email [email protected]
Nicole has been a cheesemonger in the retail world for about 10 years at Whole Foods Market in the specialty department. Whitney and I met when we were going for our CCP certification. About 2 years ago she moved to Texas, and we re-connected. She started talking about wanting to start a nonprofit to increase diversity in the cheese industry, and then the rest is history.
