This blog is a personal exploration space for the act of going with our love, quite literally, to the fields.
Mike and Liza started this blog together because we were moving to Baja to work on an organic farm for several months – we wanted to stay in touch with family and friends and write about our experience in public forum (read about the original inspiration behind this blog here). Now that we are back from the literal fields that started this blog to begin with, we will continue to write about the metaphorical fields we are entering – as well as the aspects of life in Baja that we are holding on to. Once you are a farmer, there’s no going back! We will be documenting our experiences of gardening and trying to live a more sustainable life in our more temperate New England home.
This blog will be a space for us to explore a developing relationship with each other, agriculture, food, our relatively new professions (librarianship and early childhood education), and the unexpected. We want to be accountable for the tremendous opportunity we have in our lives – accountable to our supportive friends, family, and professional colleagues – and accountable for approaching our experiences in a thoughtful way.
