Field Notes from Bounty Farm
Farm Manager Katherine Golfinopoulos reflects on her first season at Bounty Farm
When I started my position as the new Bounty Farm Manager, it was late August, and the Farm was bursting at the seams with its abundance of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, kale, flowers, herbs, strawberries, and yes, summer squash. Customers at our Farm Stand and Farmacy would offer thanks for my having "grown all this," to which I would somewhat uncomfortably offer a polite thank you, but then quickly explain that I was actually new to the Farm, and that this bounty was the work of many, many contributing, loving hands.
Upon entering the little universe that is the Bounty Farm, I immediately appreciated how the Farm is its own living and breathing organism. The Farm has a life and breath of its own, one that I am honored and humbled to participate in. I am moved by the energy and the community that supports the Farm.
