I’m a lucky farmer. Not only do I get to farm, I get to work with other farmers, foodies and agriculture enthusiasts. In March, 2014, I had the enormous privilege of organizing the Young Agrarians Spring Farmer Mixer for Vancouver Island & the Gulf Islands. The Mixer was a hands-on, practical farmer education and networking event in Nanoose Bay. Once the gathering was over, I dove directly into my own farm life, inspired and energized by the workshops and people I met and the practical ideas and skills I learned. I’ve been so busy farming this past month and a … Continue reading Vancouver Island Mixer 2014 – Learning, Networking, Growing
