Pete discovered his passion for working with soil while working with a community based non-profit called the New Community Project in Harrisonburg Virginia, as a student at James Madison University. From there, he went on to attend a semester with the National Outdoor Leadership School in Patagonia, and study natural building and homesteading in the mountains of Vermont and New York.

Since that time, he has gone on to work on a wide range of regenerative farm projects, and has acquired a diverse skill set from organic vegetable production to rotational livestock grazing and perennial food systems. His long-term goals are to help train the next generation of young farmers, and inspire people to grow their own food and medicine at home.

He was very excited to join the PEC team in the spring of 2019, and share his love for growing food with the community. In his spare time, he enjoys mountain biking, exploring the forest, and experimenting with recipes and herbal medicine.
