Sara Grady
Sara Grady is the Vice President of Programs at Glynwood, located near Cold Spring, NY. Glynwood’s mission is to ensure the Hudson Valley is a region defined by food, where farming thrives. Through its educational and collaborative projects, Glynwood’s programs support the viability of farming and promote the development of a regional food culture closely tied to agriculture. In her role at Glynwood, Sara shapes the strategy and content of Glynwood’s programs. She created Glynwood’s Regional Food Program, including its successful Cider Project, which continues to foster New York’s cider industry to create opportunities for orchards. Other program projects include the Hudson Valley CSA Coalition (diversifying and expanding CSA membership through a CSA farm network), Kitchen Cultivars (making regionally adapted seed varieties more widely grown and known), and Pastured Protein (expanding meat production that is humane and ecological). Sara’s previous background in media includes producing music videos, educational PBS programs, and interactive media for interpretive exhibitions.
