A New Farmer Perspective by Jen Henry

In this interview Jen Henry talks about how she first become involved in farming through a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model program and what challenges she and her sister, Aby, face as new farmers.

Jen and Aby formed Siren Song Permaculture a locally based consultation and garden design company. They specialize in creating edible landscapes using permaculture principles - everything from small projects installing herb spirals and keyhole gardens, to large projects that include entire edible landscape designs. All of our garden designs include food for humans as well as habitat for beneficial insects and birds and provisions for any other wildlife that you would like to encourage or discourage from your property.

She was interviewed by Ruth Ann Barrett of EarthSayers.tv on August 11, 2011 in Portland, Oregon.
