Alexia Allen here, with my class note for CdeP 1996. I’m running Hawthorn Farm, a small diversified permaculture farm near Seattle. I grow much of what I eat, and with two full-time farm apprentices, plan to take the local farmer’s market by storm next year. Now I just wish I had a useful job for my horse and pony, besides producing compost. I host a monthly pizza party with the wood-fired oven in the backyard, when I am not traveling on adventures or teaching about birds and natural history. Those who remember my teenage veganism might be surprised to know that I am locally famous for raising and butchering chickens. The best poultry you can eat, in my opinion!
