young agrarian groundswell!
Pardon us while we sound a trumpet. The young farmer movement is taking root--roots deepening everyday in healthy soil and healthy communities. Young farmers are in the public sphere--the NY TIMES and LA TIMES and KPFA Radio. They are bridging the generational gap, farming in cities and suburbs, squatting land to farm, and negotiating partnerships to farm--farming by any means possible. This might be the gateway impulse that leads others down the garden path--along the personal and professional trajectories of sustainability. This brings us to our very good friend Zoe Ida Bradbury.
Zoe is an ally and multi-level hero. She is a greenhorns collaborator and young farmer out in Oregon. She is documenting her experiences in Diary of a Young Farmer over at Edible Portland. Her stories are wonderful springtime reading--if only there were time in the spring!
Oh grand emergence--little sprout, without doubt. Thanks for your simple, purposeful, lucky little gesture.
