Becoming an indoor farmer I have sympathized with our current food workers and how we as a society undervalue local farmers and the labor they put forth. Even as a consumer who cares, it is not always easy to support sustainable agriculture. Something triggered deeper within me when I became a “farmer.” Farming requires persistence, planning and a detailed eye to to grow nutritious food. Through this sense of understanding, I am able to feel compassion towards the struggles our ethical farming communities face today. After this experience, I hope to further advocate for farming communities through operations management, green infrastructure, and food safety.
