Where do you draw inspiration from today?
I find my inspiration in the people that paved the way before me. When I feel as though I’ve lost the spark that drove me, I reflect on the people that went through struggles to make my path easier. I believe The Land Institute shares similar traits to those who inspire me. The work done here at The Land is meant to help people in the future by developing perennial crops that will be more resilient in the world of climate change while still meeting food demands. They work hard everyday today, for people tomorrow. With all their time and effort, how can you not be inspired?
