UC Forum: Soil, Love and Intimacy


Event details

Presentation by Phillip Holmon-Hebert, Farmer, Sweetlove Farm

Phil will discuss how the specific agricultural techniques Sweetlove Farm uses have led to a deepening intimacy with and growing love for this particular place—and how this sense of place has impacted his relationships with his wife and children, and how it has impacted his understanding of how care and concern for the soil fit into the larger scope of agriculture and food production today.
