“At the end of the day, we all want the DIY movement to go mainstream. We want to make it accessible. I’m totally cool with [all this media coverage].”

“I think the problem with hipsters and farming is that sometimes they start growing food and doing these projects with an attitude as if they are the first to do it. They should pay homage to people in these communities that have been doing it long before they did.”

  1. There’s a hipster farming movement?! Good grief. I guess nothing’s sacred. My grandfather was a farmer, as was his father, and many generations back. Even after Paw-Paw stopped farming, my grandmother still raised most of her own vegetables. To me, there’s nothing hip about my growing my own vegetables or keeping my own chickens. It simply makes sense, and keeps me closely connected to what I eat.

    Thanks for the links and video! This is great. 🙂
