I hope to build and operate my farm using permaculture principles.
I attended a 3-day Restoration Agriculture intensive on Mark Shepard's farm, as well as a 2-day food-forest workshop with John Sheffy (Liberation Farm) at the MA Center of Chicago.
Writing, editing, outreach/networking, working with traumatized people.
I've worked in human rights activism and social work for the past 7 years, and plan to start a permaculture and wild edibles farm within the next 3 years. I'll also incorporate empowerment programs for underprivileged youth into my farm/wild land.
