February 2020, Week 41 Comment
Farms are about so much more than food production. They're about connection with the earth that provides for us. In a space like this, we're never going to be able to produce enough for our community to eat. And that's not the point. That's not the goal. We aren't trying to do that.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What we are trying to do is something even more powerful and long-lasting. We're keeping a space that lets people understand the reality of what feeds us, from the plants that come directly from the earth to the animals who live their lives on the farm. It's uncomfortable, at times, to come face-to-face with your food. But it means you become more aware and appreciative of what's on your plate, and we think that's powerful.⠀
