Beth Neff

MARSH
Executive Director
St. Louis, MO
Beth Neff is a recent transplant to St. Louis, having sold her organic vegetable farm in Michigan to purchase and renovate a mixed use building in South City, the new home of MARSH, a not-for-profit life-art laboratory where she and community partners will be “materializing and activating radical social habitus.” Beth has devoted her career to social arts advocacy and organizing, primarily in the areas of food justice and sustainable agriculture, cooperative organization, and urban planning. She has been the executive director of two not-for-profit organizations, worked as the produce manager at her local store-front food co-op, organized a growers’ collaborative, founded a year-round indoor farmers market, teaches permaculture design classes, has consulted on numerous sustainable urban planning projects, and spent three years gathering city-wide input and writing the document for her city’s sustainable 10-Year Comprehensive Master Plan. Neff is also the author of the young adult novel, Getting Somewhere (Viking/Penguin, 2012).
