Kate Greenberg: Young Farmer Becomes Colorado’s Commissioner of Agriculture


Lindsey talks with Kate Greenberg, Colorado’s new Commissioner of Agriculture, and former Western Program Director with the National Young Farmers Coalition. Lindsey and Kate check in about what it’s been like to be the youngest person, and first woman, to hold this role in Colorado, as well as Colorado’s plans to address climate change, land access barriers, and to support its next generation of farmers and ranchers.

Kate’s advice to young people looking to move into roles of leadership in food and agriculture? “Just do it.” Surround yourself with people that love and support you, and don’t wait until you feel ready (because you probably never really will).
