Meet Your Farmer: Liz

Liz

I’m new to First Light Farm this year and really excited for all that the upcoming season will bring. I fell in love with farming through the University of Washington student farm and through the wonderful people there was introduced to First Light, where I hope to grow not only vegetables, but a deeper understanding of human-kind’s relationship to the land and passion for cultivation. My mantra is a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson: “The greatest delight which the fields and woods minister, is the suggestion of an occult relation between man and the vegetable. I can’t wait for the dirt in my hair, shovel in my hands, and a belly full of beets.
