Please take a look at this reflective article by our summer 2016 intern Kelsey Kruse! Her work is invaluable to our business, giving us the scholastic edge and inspiration to keep us moving forward in the right direction. We loved having you, Kelsey!
Please enjoy this amazing article by our good friend and fellow agro-enthusiast Celine Jennison. We met through a Cornell professor and she got to take a couple of days off from her research on Hawaii island to visit our farm with her partner Christian Shaw. During our time together they both shared useful advice, meaningful insight, and knowledge from her studies with agro-forests and perennial systems. With her help we are on the right track and hope to have her back soon!
Now is the time. Immersing youth in mindful agricultural practices ignites the meaningful and necessary connection between people and food... between people and the environment. Every interaction is a lesson awaiting fruition. The more interactions we provide the more lessons we learn and the closer we get to finding solutions we need for a healthy practice. Let us not underestimate the potential of our youth!
There have been a lot of firsts for us and by no means could we have gotten this far alone. In creating this business, but even more so this social movement, we realize the value in tracking our achievements, our failures, and the landmarks which help us grow.
