Last evening was a celebration of farm life and sustainability at the annual Local Farm Dinner organized by the Dickinson College Farm. The speaker was Kristin Kimball, co-owner with husband Mark of Essex Farm and Institute and guest of the Carlisle House. Her inspirational presentation about her life-changing career decision as described in her book The Dirty Life was enjoyed by all. Farmed by draft horses and several tractors,
Essex Farm is a total CSA farm providing a year's food for over 200 members.
Prior to Kristin's presentation, two of the Dickinson College students also spoke on how the Dickinson Farm and its leaders and
fellow students changed their whole outlook and their futures about food,
life, farming and sustainability. This year, proceeds from the dinner
went to Leaf Project PA.
