4 years later...

wow. i now have not 1, but 2 little ones and i have taken some time off from farming. this year i am getting back to it, with my little ones in tow! my son is now 4 and my daughter is 1. and i have stayed close to food and farming all this time, because that IS my passion! and now, i start again.

when i saw this contest sponsored by gillette, i thought it was kismet. the first prize is EXACTLY the amount needed for my farm start-up. second prize isn't too shabby either. and i discovered it mere days before the deadline. This post is a part of #UseYourAnd activity at BlogAdda in association with Gillette Venus“    updateI'M GOING TO DO MORE RESEARCH, BUT IT LOOK LIKE I NEED TO BE AN INDIAN CITIZEN TO ENTER THAT COMPETITION. SHUCKS.

i want to pursue my long-time passion, of farming organically and raising my family on the farm. i want to foster healthy relationships within my community and with the natural environment. 
i think it can be tricky, the whole "you can have it all" thing. i do believe in myself, as a farmer and a mom. but i think the key for me, is, not without support. emotional, physical, financial, spiritual, and so on. we all need help, and it can be really difficult to acknowledge that, or ask for it. 

for more information on my background, the farm start-up, and to view the video, please visit the fundraising page:

thanks for the consideration! -mira and family
