Lydia and Wyan joined a holistic leadership group in hopes of growing their farm and learning from their peers experiences. As their operation has evolved, their mentor and peer network has remained critical for the sustainability of their farm. Putting differences aside and appreciating the nuance and plurality in the farming community is part of creating the kinds of communities that are livable, and farmable for the next generation. Mentorship, networking, working with others and being part of a peer group has been critical to their success. Relationships matter.
