An adherent to the organic farming movement since the 1960s, I now farm on 12 acres (CCOF certified) in Ojai and now devote a lot of energy towards training farmers and consumer education. Four new organic farmers in our area formerly worked for me. The farm is an open resource and the CSA program includes a large number of volunteer harvesters, long-term and one-time participants. I am the president of the Ojai Center for Regenerative Agriculture and the former president of the Cornucopia Institute. I attended Harvard College for only one year due to my innate curiosity. I have a degree in Literature from The University of California at Santa Barbara.
