I live on a sustainable family farm and work for a humanitarian aid organization. My goal is to have a simple beautiful life. The Quaker acronym SPICE (simplicity, peace, integrity, community, and equality) guides my life.
While it may seem that I have neglected my blog lately, it has been for a good reason - we've had a lot of activity going on behind the scenes at the farm. In addition to our regular twice-weekly deliveries and Saturday farmers' market, we've been busy prepping for an important visitor. The First Lady of Virginia, Mrs. Dorothy McAuliffe, is coming to visit the farm today! We're so excited to to be ambassadors for sustainable, chemical-free farming in our state (and the rest of the country). Mrs. McAuliffe has a special concern for childhood nutrition and food security and an interest in boosting agriculture in the state. Here's some of the press on her visit. We also have an upcoming presentation on the alternative to the current industrial food model. More on that later.
