I saw this article in the Washington Post. A growing number of young Americans are leaving desk jobs to farm A growing number of young Americans are leaving desk jobs to farm The article talks about the rising number of educated people who are starting to farm. It makes sense because many of the younger generation, 20-30's are concerned about the quality of food and nutrition. It gives me hope. Farmers markets and road side stands will hopefully continue and people will have access to good pesticide free food. These folks leaving their desk jobs and learning to live off the land are learning valuable skills. I wish them luck and hope this trend continues to grow.
