During these endeavors, Elston moved back to his hometown and served on Village council for 9 years, 8 of those years as mayor, and was Chair of Beaver Regional Waste Management and Chair of the Joint Councils of Beaver County.

Elston Solberg is a fervent believer in human potential and the constant advancement of the world. He believes that in the next 35 years we will need to grow all of the food man has consumed in the last 10,000 years. He wakes up every day to help growers distribute scarce resources with the challenge that every acre of cultivable land will need to grow 70% more food by 2050.
