Yes! Attending Reunion

I live in St. Paul, Minnesota 8 blocks from the Mississippi River, if you can believe that. I've planted my entire back yard in organic vegetables, fruit & herbs. Fascinated by year-round vertical farming as a way to localize food systems and create access for all people to healthy food (part of my work). Super excited about this. Hoping to one day own the farm, perhaps in Southeast Minnesota or outside Asheville, NC. One child in College studying bio-chem, entemology & lepidoptery, the other in Junior High playing the bassoon, clarinet & the bass guitar. Love canoeing in the Boundary Waters. If you ever come this way & have interest in a wilderness adventure in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, let me know. Would love to offer you a cup of coffee or hit the water trails with you. Peace.

What did you always want to do that you haven't done yet?

Build a green house, learn to brew malt-driven beer, walk across Cuba, buy the farm, own a restaurant/community center healthy locally-sourced soul food with vegan fare cafe.
