Hi, Katie. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). I’m so glad you found us, and I’m super curious to hear more about what you’re studying and its applications. The intersection of learning practices and beginning farmers is right in our wheelhouse—and even more so that of our big sibling, Farm Aid. Please tell me more!
In the meantime, I hope you’ll find plenty of projects and ideas here to spur you on, and I hope you’ll be game for sharing some of your own, too—like the recipe for that mushroom/faro soup—in our member blog, The Stew. Elsewhere on HOMEGROWN, you can always find the latest additions to the site at the top of the homepage, and if you’ve ever got questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home and I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
Hi, Katie: Thanks so much for sharing a bit more about your research. I'm guessing you're familiar with Farm Hack, the National Young Farmers Coalition, the Greenhorns, and beginning farmers networks in places like HOMEGROWN's own home state of Massachusetts—but if not, those might be helpful! We've also got a lot of beginning (and established) farmers here on HOMEGROWN and even more who are involved with Farm Aid, so let's put our heads together in the future if there's something specific you find yourself looking for. In the meantime, so glad you're here!
