We love farming, but farming is not enough. We manage to take some time off from the fields to teach; Jason at Bronx Community College and I teach at the Bard Prison Initiative. Being in front of the classroom fills an important need in our lives to spark interest, spread the word and challenge both young and old minds.
Take a second to look at a recent article written in Modern Farmer about the prison garden I work in when I'm not in my own. I swear, they really do like their kale chips.
