Char Alkire Joins TwispWorks Board of Directors

TwispWorks is thrilled to announce that Char Alkire has joined the Foundations Board of Directors!

Char is a native of the Northwest. She became a part time valley resident in 2003. Fully retired after spending 40 years teaching in the field of science education, she and her husband of 44 years, now call the valley their home.

They own 22 acres of farmland in the upper valley and in 2005 they forged a partnership with a local agricultural business. Their fields were the “test “ fields, planted in organic wheat and emmer for Bluebird Grain Farms. When they aren’t changing hand lines or working in their large vegetable garden, they love to hike, bike and cross country ski.

Initially moving to the valley for the recreation, Char quickly discovered the amazing Methow Valley community. She served on the board of the Methow Conservancy and has volunteered with numerous other organizations. Char is looking forward to serving on the board of Twisp Works, after being an advisory board member.

“It has been 10 years since the community gave Twisp Works the challenge to reinvent the Twisp Works campus into a modern community hub and economic engine for the Methow Valley. I am honored to serve on this board and help to create a sustainable and vibrant economic community.”
