The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Permaculture interview

Travis and Kacy interview team 2010
We took the morning off to be interviewed by fellow bloggers Travis and Kacy from the Portrait of a Farm blog.

They're on a cross country adventure that will evenutally end up in Ashland, Oregon.

I liked the questions they focused on and was refreshed by their enthusiasm for this project, which is to interview farmers and homesteaders along their way back to the upper west coast with a twist towards  permaculture techniques.

WOW! You are going to be famous. Some day I will be able to say, "Anna lived with me for a year!" Seriously, I'm glad you liked the questions and had a good time. What are they going to do with all this?

Right now, they're just writing up different people on their blog, but they have dreams of turning it into a book. I'm flattered to have been included --- they folks they've interviewed include some of my favorite farming authors, and I don't really think we're at that level... :-)

Travis is a wonderful person. We miss him dearly here in Oregon. I'm glad he got to visit you.

We thoroughly enjoyed them. And, better yet, we didn't lose anyone to the alligator swamp this time! :-)

Thanks for the interview! It was a beautiful spot to visit and we find ourselves referencing you in conversation often. And thanks to Brett in Oregon for the recommendation!

You two are prolific writers and I'm impressed with your dedication to experimentation and sharing.

We've been talking about you all too! I've been enjoying reading about your journey and look forward to hearing more as you reach the Virginia parts of your trip. :-)
