Pete is an Associate Director at the Wallace Center where he oversees the Resilient Agriculture & Ecosystems Initiative and the Pasture Project. His background is in regenerative agriculture and food system program design and implementation in the U.S. and Australia. Pete began his work in agriculture through permaculture and keyline design, believing in the potential for working lands to support climate change mitigation and adaptation. This has evolved to include the economic and social benefits regenerative agriculture offer farmers and rural communities.
He holds degrees in Environmental Management and History from Indiana University and a Masters of Public Affairs from the University of Minnesota. Pete is based in Wisconsin, where he’s always thinking about where to put another fruit tree.
