Teddy comes to PEC with a rich, diversified background in farming, nonprofit work, and food systems education. Growing up in rural New York, Teddy is most comfortable surrounded by fresh foods and clucking chickens.
After graduating from Sewanee with a B.A. in Political Science, Teddy worked on several organic farms in North Carolina and Virginia before settling into educational farming at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Western North Carolina. Most recently, he managed the Highland County Virginia educational campus and farm for the Allegheny Mountain Institute.
When he’s not farming or gardening at home, Teddy loves exploring nature and taking long walks with his wife Mary and dogs Rhea and Otis. He enjoys blending art and cooking, and playing lots of different board games.
