Mary Margaret Lowe was the Library Director at Georgetown College for twenty years, until her retirement in 2011. She has extensive experience in accreditation, budgeting, and personnel. Previously she worked for twelve years as a research analyst at the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food, and Environment, including three years as a seed purity analyst.
Her interest in nature began when she was 8 years old and spent two weeks at Girl Scout camp. She also spent many happy summers on an aunt’s diversified farm, where she gained an appreciation for locally-grown food, sustainable agriculture, and the hard work needed on a family farm to make a living but also to improve the land for future generations.
She and her husband Eugene Lacefield own 330 acres in Henry County. About 200 of those acres are in woods, including a mile-long stretch on Drennon Creek. They built their own solar house in the 1980’s and more recently installed solar panels that supply 90% of their electrical power needs.
Mary Margaret currently serves as the Treasurer of the Kentucky land Trusts Coalition.
Mary Margaret Lowe has been a Board member since 2014.
