Who I Am: 

I am an organic farmer and co-owner of Radical Root Farm near the lovely, blustery city of Chicago. I am also a writer of both fiction and non-fiction. Here at Bitch I will be mainly discussing issues surrounding ecofeminism, or green feminism, or the role of environmentalism as it pertains to feminism. Other things I am include: a medicine-making herbalist, tree-hugging health nut, insatiable bookworm, bicycle enthusiast and mama to a baby boy named Huckleberry.

What I'm Listening To: 

Balkan Beat Box, Voltio, M.I.A., Micheal Franti, Andrew Bird, Billie Holiday, Jill Scott, Austra, NPR podcasts like The Splendid Table and This American Life

What I'm Watching: 

Downton Abbey, Daily Show, Frontline documentaries, Dirt! The Movie, Ken Burns' Prohibition, Revenge

What I'm Reading: 

I read too many books at one time. Right now they are: Jennifer Egan's A Visit from the Goon Squad, Sally Fallon's Nourishing Traditions (yes, it's a cookbook, but it provides endless reading material. It's huge and you always go back to it!), Kristin Kimball's The Dirty Life, Junot Diaz's The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao, Vandana Shiva's Soil Not Oil, Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Richard Heinberg's The End of Growth
