Ethan Grundberg grew up in eastern Iowa. After graduating from college he spent a year working in the northern coffee-growing region of Nicaragua where he honed his Spanish. He then moved to NYC to provide a community garden network some horticultural support. Ethan returned to academia to pursue his Master's degree at the University of California, Davis specializing in agroecology and vegetable production. While there, he managed some of the university's certified organic research land and provided instruction in safe equipment use to student employees. Upon graduation, Ethan returned east to work for the New Entry Sustainable Farming Project. Most recently, Ethan worked as the farm manager at Allandale Farm, a 40 acre diversified vegetable farm in eastern Massachusetts that sold produce through a 400 member CSA, a roadside stand, and restaurants in the Boston area. He, his wife, and their three-year-old son are excited to call the Hudson Valley their new home. Ethan will be based out of the CCE Orange County office in Middletown.
