It was an exciting week on the farm. We had the pleasure of hosting Janisse Ray, who was visiting Bowdoin College from Georgia. Janisse is an activist, farmer, and nature writer, who has authored five books. Her most recent book, The Seed Underground, celebrates seeds and seed savers for their resilience and the hope they inspire. Charmed by Janisse’s descriptive story telling, students, faculty, and friends of the farm gathered around the table to discuss the realities of farming.
There are now 18 piglets on the farm, who scurry about in frenzied exploration, while children (and adults, who are we kidding?!) gravitate closer and closer to watch. Seeds continue to be sowed, sprouts are growing taller and there are more piglets on the way!
