Sarah Tyler visited for a week in 2010 and came to work with Elyse wearing rubber boots she brought with her from San Francisco. When Dewane asked why, she said she expected to get wet. Although she never considered farming an option for herself before, we knew right then she would be a good farm worker, and we're happy she's with us for a second season.
Before working at Midheaven, she had really never thought about farming or gardening at all, "And that was part of what I was beginning to recognize as a problem. I had a total disconnect about the food I was eating. I had no idea what was in it, where it had come from, at what cost it had been grown. I saw this same disconnection in many people close to me."
Sarah spent most of the 2011 season in the garden. This season she is looking forward to having more peaceful moments there, as well as learning more about proper pasture rotation, all things tractor, and cows, cows, cows. She is very excited to continue working with and caring for our fledgling dairy herd, including making and using natural medicines for them.
