Earthaven Experience Programs Faculty, Farmer
Liz (she/her) has been getting her hands dirty in Western North Carolina since 2004. After graduating from Warren Wilson College in 2006 with a made-up degree in “Social and Activist Theater,” she immediately began pursuing a life more deeply connected to food and other basic human needs. In April 2010, she began a love affair with cows while work-exchanging on a farm at Earthaven. She now runs a small subsistence farm in the community, where, along with the support of many others, she tends to a variety of animals and plants, including cows, pigs, laying hens, broiler chickens, turkeys, livestock guardian dogs, as well as grasses, cover crops, and silage crops.
