Hi there everybody, I look forward to digging in with you all in the coming weeks! My name’s Kathleen, and I work as a farmhand on a small 10 acre farm in Winters, California, on Free Spirit Farm. We produce all sorts of organic special variety fruits, veggies and eggs mainly for local restaurants and farmers’ markets. It’s my second season with a fantastic crew, and I’m curious to see how many changes have happened/will happen since last year. Additionally, I’m completing my master’s degree in Agroecology (from a program in Andalucia, Spain) and am excited to keep learning/sharing all sorts of different experiences and lenses on climate change resilience. I especially hope we can dialogue about bridging traditional ecological knowledges led by indigenous peoples in California to encourage more resilient, socially and ecologically just farming systems. Cheers!
