Whilst in MD, be sure to check out the awesome organic farm and training program at The Accokeek Foundation www.accokeek.org.
It was there I did my 2 year farm apprenticeship. Most physically fit and well-fed two years of my life! Not to mention the sublime beauty of spending my days deeply connected with and thoroughly humbled by Nature. Haven't taken a single bite of food or drop of water for granted since. My complexities? Banal next to the web of life in soil; the amazing spiral patterns on cauliflower; to live with bald eagles as beings and not as promotional imagery; to live in joy with what I once called discomfort; to share food every day with beautiful people; morning sun dew drops, sparkling stars on asparagus ferns.
It is this beauty we must cultivate in our cities, so we all may celebrate together that which makes us possible.
