In his role at the Farm, Ethan helps teachers and administrators use food education and sustainability to bring about school transformation. He teaches a range of courses and professional development workshops for students, educators, administrators, and food system enthusiasts around the state. He also coordinates the Farm to School Institute and frequently mentors school teams on developing farm to school programs.
Ethan is passionate about food systems, sustainable agriculture, and Vermont's working landscape, and he shares that passion with students in classrooms, fields, and schools around the state. Ethan has explored agriculture all over the world, serving as a WWOOFer (Willing Workers On Organic Farms) in Europe and New Zealand. His love of the Vermont landscape grew while working for Bread and Butter Farm in South Burlington and on a woods crew for a 70,000-tap maple sugaring operation in Cambridge. In his spare time, he now operates a small sugar bush with his father and two partners on Elmore Mountain.
Ethan lives in Vergennes with his family and loves dreaming up ideas for applied permaculture on his family's land in North Chittenden.
