Laura O'Donohue
Recipient of the Thomas W. Keesee, Jr. Conservation Award
Laura O’Donohue is a recognized leader in sustainability and environmental education. Snow Hill Farm, her working organic farm in North Salem, NY, is a successful model of responsible farming and brings fresh healthful food to the community while sustaining the land in healthy condition. Snow Hill Farm is a proud member of the Northeast Organic Farming Association, Watershed Agricultural Council, and New York Farm Bureau, and has been awarded a Bird Habitat Certification for its habitat management plan. Laura’s passion for sustainable farming further inspired her and her husband Kevin to establish the O’Donohue Family Educational Farm at Stanford University, a living laboratory to teach and demonstrate small-scale agriculture for the next generation of leaders in sustainable food systems. Laura is a member of the board of Audubon New York and sits on the Rachel Carson Awards Council of the Audubon Women in Conservation program.
