Jane Bollinger – Recording Secretary

Growing up in in Southeast PA in a home where mom cooked three meals a day “from scratch,” Jane developed a lifelong taste for “real” food that today fuels her passion for promoting sustainable agriculture and advocating for farmers, who deserve to make a living wage.

Wayne County Grown. For a decade of summers, Jane did a live cooking demonstration at the Wayne County Farmers Market.

Before retiring to the country, Jane held editing, reporting and writing positions at ABC’s Good Morning America, The Scranton Times-Tribune and The River Reporter. Jane currently serves as president of the board of trustees at Bethany Public Library.

Ever the “foodie,” Jane can always find time to cook “from scratch” at home. She lives in the wilds of Dyberry Township with her husband David Huggard on a dead-end dirt road with the bears and the wild turkeys.


Jenna Wayne Mauder – Education Circle Rep

Jenna currently serves the community as the Agriculture and Food Program Manager at The Cooperage Project in Honesdale, PA. With a degree in elementary education, her experience has been primarily in environmental education, program development and public outreach.

Allaina’s mission is to help create a more sustainable local economy the old-fashioned way by sourcing products as locally as possible, reducing waste, and just doing the right thing.  In addition to food and beer, Allaina loves long walks in the woods, skeeball, spreadsheets and that rewarding feeling when the last piece of the puzzle fits in perfectly. Allaina is also treasurer of the Clean Energy Coop.


Charles (Chuck) SanClementi – Board Member at Large

Charles moved to Hawley, PA from Manhattan in 2005 and became a full-time resident with his family in 2009. Born and raised in New Jersey, he studied at Pratt Institute and William Patterson University, then worked and lived in New York City. A former conservation assistant for The MET, Chuck’s professional experiences include managing fine art galleries, running an independent fine arts installation and logistics business, and instructing at NYU Graduate School. In 1995, he co-founded a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, an online fine arts reference library. With a master’s degree in fine art, Chuck is accomplished in wood working, design and construction, and brings a lot of handy know-how to the table.

In 2016, while serving as a board member for his residential community, Chuck successfully organized a grassroots information campaign stopping Kinder Morgan and Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company from extracting 4 million gallons of lake water in Pike County to test a newly constructed 13 mile section of one of their fracked gas pipelines running through Wayne and Pike counties. The hard-fought effort prevented a proposed months-long lake siphoning project that would have required the use of approximately 1,600 tanker trucks in an otherwise
quiet residential community. It was at that time he first learned about SEEDS and has avidly followed it ever since. “I’m honored and excited to be more directly involved with these environmentally indispensable issues,” he said.


Devan George – Outreach Circle Rep

Devan is a Honesdale, PA native. She attended Honesdale High School and volunteered with and learned from many local environmental organizations, such as NEPA Audubon, SEEDS, and Lacawac Sanctuary. These interactions sparked a lifelong passion for the environment and inspired Devan’s career plans.

Devan received her B.S. in Environmental Conservation and Sustainability from the University of New Hampshire and a M.S. in Entomology from University of Delaware. Before starting her current role as the Communications Coordinator with Pike County Conservation District, Devan worked for the United States Department of Agriculture, in their agricultural research service, Dow AgroScience as a research and development intern, Cornell University as a summer researcher and Lacawac Sanctuary as an environmental educator.

Environmental education being a lifelong passion of hers, Devan always made time for sharing what she was working on and the things that she learned with the communities she lived in. So taking on the responsibilities as an Outreach Circle Rep at SEEDS is right up her alley!
