It must stem (pun intended. wait for it…) from my upbringing but I love being in, on, and in all ways involved with farms. From the orchard in Harvard to Hutchins Farm in Concord to Bartlett’s on Nantucket to simply living and being near my green thumb friend TK, I seem to just keep falling back into growing things. And here in Ollanta is no different. My friend Lindsey and I have been helping to run the CSA (community supported agriculture) Program which includes everything from social media, to making the weekly flyer, finding recipes, and delivering baskets. In exchange we get a basket of beautiful veggies every week and we can run down to the chakra and help whenever we feel like it!
