How do I meet a farmer?

Big or small, urban or rural, we are all part of a community. But is there a growing disconnect between urban and rural? Jill’s story, along with her work in community development, past and present farm life and involvement in the local sustainable farming scene provide the right mix to address this question and the lack of understanding in our communities of agriculture. “After successfully developing a career in community development, it occurred to me, a better plan might be to move to a community and be a part of it.”
