Anne Trumble
Founder, Director

Anne Trumble’s interest in agrarian landscapes runs deep in her farm family with a 160 year history on the Great Plains. Trumble left the farm to earn undergraduate and graduate degrees in horticulture and landscape architecture, respectively, before practicing professionally in New York City where she designed and managed the redevelopment of 125th Street in Harlem, as well as other parks, plazas, and streetscapes. But the Big Apple couldn’t keep her away from agricultural land use issues, which she returned to in founding Emerging Terrain. In addition to the organization’s work in the Midwest and Southwest, she has collaborated with the Arid Lands Institute in Los Angeles, taught at Columbia University and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and is a regular contributor at The Nature of Cities.
