New Executive Director brings government, nonprofit experience to growing Save Family Farming movement to elevate farming voices and highlight family farming in crisis

EVERSON, Wash. – Save Family Farming is announcing a new leader for the Washington state-focused farming advocacy organization.

New Executive Director Ben Tindall joins Save Family Farming with a background in farming advocacy, non-profit leadership and governmental affairs, having served as an aide to state and federal lawmakers. Tindall has 20 years of combined experience working in and with state and federal governments as well as in nonprofit management.

“I’m so excited to join this team and help lead our growing efforts to make sure the public hears the voices of real farmers and sees the growing crisis facing family farming in Washington as well as around the nation,” Tindall said. “This new role for me is an extension of my great passion for speaking out on important issues and helping urge leaders and communities toward better policies.”

Most recently, Tindall worked as Governmental Affairs Communications Coordinator with the Washington Farm Bureau, following previous work with that organization as a Policy and Membership Specialist. Through that involvement, he built a passion for advocating for Washington’s diverse farming community.

Developing coalitions and relationships among key stakeholders and agency liaisons while communicating key priorities is a particular focus for Tindall.

While he’s called Washington state home for over a decade, Tindall originally hails from the state of Texas. In addition to working as an aide to an influential Congressman there, he helped build and lead a successful nonprofit emergency homeless shelter in central Texas.
