Kim Tateo

Executive Director and Farm Manager

Kim Tateo is a shepherd in many ways, from shepherding the sheep to managing volunteers and projects. She has over a decade of experience working with non-profit organizations in a variety of settings including event planning, education, grant writing and project management. Kim is also an artist and educator in the Capital Region.

A common theme for art is interconnectedness—to each other as humans and to the Earth. She is also inspired by her observations of being a shepherd on the land.

Kim is also involved with zero waste efforts and plays music in a local band. She holds a BA in Music from the University of Iowa.
