I was recently interviewed by The Organic School Project. I answered some of the usual questions as well as some unusual ones. Thanks for the opportunity and I love what they do!
I follow Dissertation to Dirt and I really enjoy her blog. Neysa is on a quest to become a farmer (along with her husband). Her recent posts have made me think and I wanted to share them with you:
Dear Farmers: I think you deserve healthcare
She alerted her readers to an investigation into farmers living without healthcare. That’s just shameful.
When I was in Nashville for Blissdom, I had breakfast with a farmer. While the blogging conference was going on, there were two other conferences happening similtaneously in the same massive convention hall: a “combine” (as in farm equipment) conference and a Catholic conference. Hanging outside the conference made for some fantastic people watching: bloggers, nuns and priests, and farmers. There’s a joke in there somewhere…
I didn’t stay at the fancy hotel, but a cheaper one about a mile away (I don’t mind walking). Anyway one morning before the conference I was drinking my cranberry juice in the breakfast area looking at my phone and I glanced over to a very interesting looking man. Instead of having breakfast with my phone, I decided to greet this chap. We struck up a conversation.
Turns out, he’s a farmer. He told me some interesting stuff about growing organics and where he farms (out west). I told him I was a blogger…and left it at that. We exchanged cards. I told him I might be looking for a guest blog and he said his wife handles the email. So, when I get a chance I may email him.
Now that’s a guy I’d love to interview! I wonder if he has healthcare…
