Ruthie King is the Farm Site Coordinator for the brand new Grange Farm School in Willits, California. She arrived in this position after cultivating a rich diversity of experiences ranging from design to agriculture. Upon graduating from Columbia University with a degree in Architecture and Sustainable Development, Ruthie moved back to the West Coast to practice sustainable and natural building techniques. Moving from farm to farm working with owners on historic rebuilds, sustainable retrofits, and natural building projects instilled in her a passion for holistic and diversified management of farm operations. She began by redeveloping a small historic raw milk dairy and immediately fell in love with cows and intensive grazing systems. Animal welfare and sustainable livestock management became her new focus, but her design background and creativity continues to influence her work. A proud member of three different Granges in the past few years, she is invigorated by local action and communal solutions to the crisis we are facing in agriculture.
