McKenzie and her fiance Jamie have been trying to start a farm for three years, but due to troublesome landlords, Canada Thistle, ravenous deer, and lack of money, it's taken time to realize the things they don’t know about agriculture. But they haven’t given up, and this past July they finally landed on a beautiful place in Finksburg, Maryland that they are returning a working farm. They have six sheep, two alpacas, bees, chickens, and 25 acres to transform. Things are taking shape quickly, but they’re going easy this time around because they know how much work being a farmer really is. Jamie works at a local CSA called Breezy Willow, and the family who runs it has been endlessly helpful in teaching them the ropes. McKenzie works at a Montessori preschool and gets to spend her days teaching children how to plant veggies, tend to chickens, and treat each other with empathy. It's basically her dream job, so she has lots of energy when she comes home to play “Farmer Brown."

Anna E. Evans-Goldstein grew up watching her father garden and her mother keep their house green with plants. She spent time in Madagascar, where she witnessed a culture transitioning away from agricultural living, and Cambodia, where farming is a fatal occupation as mines from the Khmer Rouge still litter the countryside. In Portland, OR, for college, Anna experienced what can happen in a city where everyone has a green thumb and the rain never stops. Now she is back in her home town of Baltimore working for the City Mayor's Office on an initiative called Power In Dirt. This new program builds capacity in blighted city neighborhoods for communities and residents to adopt vacant lots and turn them into community-managed green spaces.
