Getting even a modest pedestrian improvements can be an uphill battle. We have a design bias and process that is inherently unfriendly to pedestrians and bicycles. While we’ve made great strides in the last decade, it’s still a constant (and frustrating) battle.
from Minnesota Farm Living by Kristeena Patsche
I often get asked why I decided to go into agriculture. Yes, I grew up on a farm but my thoughts were to become a nurse. It wasn’t until I attended an agriculture leadership conference my senior year of high school (despite not wanting to go) that I realized how many negative things were being said about agriculture.
I was shocked. I was almost offended that someone would say those things about people just like my mom and dad.
