But in celebration of the exciting things ahead - a little bit of what I'll be up to:
- living and working on an organic farm in southern California with four other interns as part of the Abundant Table Farm Project
- enjoying the produce we grow and helping start a CSA (www.jointhefarm.com) so other people can too
- learning about "environmental sustainability; organic, small scale agriculture vs. industrial agribusiness; community health and access to unprocessed foods, especially as it relates to disadvantaged communities; immigration and labor issues"
- recovering from four Chicago winters by living a bike ride from the Pacific ocean, right off of Highway 1...I hear it might be kind of nice out there
For the story of the stylish headgear, see an earlier post. Impressive corn featured here is on my uncle's dairy farm (and, as my cousin said, "there's nothing organic about it!").
And yes, the hat is in my suitcase.
