A blog series that deals with issues surrounding aging, farming, and quality of life.
By Ellen S. Gibson
I am a farmer, educator, and consultant to the Maine AgrAbility Program. I raise goats and the forage they eat and tend to the fields and woods of Stearns Hill Farm in West Paris. My grandparents lived here when I was growing up. From my earliest memories, the Farm has held a special place in my heart.
The Maine AgrAbility Blog covers timely topics such as
- farming, aging, and risk;
- caring for others;
- chronic low-grade inflammation;
- kitchen ergonomics; and
- much more!
