Hannah grew up in the city of Boston, but eventually moved to a much smaller, rural town in Western Massachusetts. There, she fell in love with sustainable farming and a do-it-yourself lifestyle. She also found a sense of hope in the extensive and thriving social networks of grassroots farmers, artists, musicians, and activists in her community. This inspired her to learn more about sustainability and DIY living. She wanted to grow her capacity to make positive changes at a community level.
Amy’s feelings of disillusionment with capitalist systems led her to explore organic farming and Earth-based living several years ago. Ever since then, her life has taken on new meaning. Most recently, Amy has spent time working in community service positions throughout rural Western North Carolina. While doing that, she discovered that at a time when we’re more factionalized and isolated than ever, the land and the nourishment that we derive from it is our greatest connector. Amy joined the Wild Abundance team in January 2018 as a social media marketer and has found great joy in working to empower others to live more natural, mindful lives.
