Page Pardo: "As a kid in the suburbs, I was always convincing my parents to let me plant huge squash vines or sunflowers in their lovely landscaping. When I grew up and became a corporate lawyer, I'd get home from work long after dark, and go outside to tend to my patio container food garden. It was the best part of my day. It got ridiculously large. A container farm. Yet, it had never dawned on my to pursue farming as a career. It finally hit me in my 30s: farming is a career possibility for this girl. No, farming is not just a career possibility, it is THE career for this girl. It felt like a huge, risky leap, but I quit practicing law and took a farm apprenticeship. And now my relatively small property and hundred animals bring so much joy to me, and hopefully to many. As my farm is about to open to visitors, I can't wait to spread the word about how others can do it, too. Become #womenwhofarm. (Ok, and men, too, but farm girls are extra special.)"
