Last weekend, I arrived in Nashville, TN to attend the National Farmers Union Women’s Conference. The conference focused on co-operation and interdependence, reflecting the reality that farming is a communal effort and centering the female experience of working in ag.
A few months ago, I was standing in a field in northeast Iowa admiring the corn and soybeans nearing harvest. The cornstalks danced overhead and a friend’s child was admiring the fuzz on the soybeans.
i look outside my window at all there is to see
the clouds, the sky, the buildings, the leaves on every tree
and think of how amazing creation truly is
and just how much there really is for all of us to miss

We are excited to announce that we will be running our Faith Farms and Climate program in Harlan, Atlantic, Red Oak, and Earlham this winter!
