Laurie Thompson was born and raised in Ferguson, Missouri. She is still connected to the community by being active in their family business, Negwer Materials, located in Ferguson for nearly 95 years. Laurie works with architects and interior designers helping them with product selections with a focus on sustainability. Encouraging the movement to build healthier and more sustainable buildings, she is a member of the USGBC and is a certified LEED Green Associate.
Laurie graduated with a degree in Food Science and Nutrition from The University of Missouri, Columbia and still advocates the importance of healthy food choices along with an active lifestyle. She is an avid flower gardener and would love to gain experience growing delicious organic food on the farm.
Laurie’s passion for the outdoors, a healthy lifestyle, and her love for kids (she has three), creates an interest for her to be a part of the EarthDance Farm family “farmily”.
