Faithful Farmer: Hannah Breckbill
Growing up Mennonite gave me a lens that sees *community* as the place where God expresses themself and where we, together, can build God’s kingdom, the world that the Creator intended and that we all deserve. Farming gives me a clear role in community, and an opportunity every day to notice and give thanks for the communities of life in this place.

Busy Bees Lead to Beautiful Blooms
My work here not only urges me to act for all Iowans, but to continue to create and cultivate hope. Hope is the backbone of everything I do in life – from planting my spring seeds and wishing for a bountiful summer harvest, to empowering Iowans to thrive and live their fullest life.
Never be afraid to change. I farm differently today than I did twenty years ago. I believe that successful farming requires overcoming adversities in a productive and sustainable way while recognizing and creating the solutions to the climate crisis.
Warren County Farmer
I am deeply concerned about the myriad negative outcomes that climate change has in store over the next several decades, and I think that future generations have a right to inherit a livable, sustainable planet. That is why I value Iowa IPL’s work and commitment to Climate Action across the state.
