Executive Director

Marci Miller

Marci Miller joins Rural Roots as the Executive Director after farming on the Palouse since 2009. She has been active with the Cultivating Success program as a farmer-educator and advisor for many years. She is well versed in small farm viability as she and her husband own Deep Roots Farm [], a Certified Naturally Grown vegetable farm in Moscow where they have made their living from the farm since 2012.

Marci has a keen interest in land access for beginning farmers and, along with program staff, have recently launched Idaho Farm Link, which will connect existing landowners with those seeking land. In her spare time, she enjoys backpacking, running rivers, fishing, hiking with her four-legged companion Ellie and reading books by the fire.

You are welcome to contact Marci here with questions or ideas.
