Instructor: Amanda Midkiff, Locust Light Farms
Amanda moved to New Hope in 2013 to lend her energies to the creation of Roots to River Farm, coaxing the healing properties from earth’s plants. During her two year stay, she fell in love with the vibrant culture and community of Bucks County, and decided to stay and provide herbal medicine to the community she had grown to love. Prior to working at Roots to River, Amanda had been working as an organic vegetable farmer throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania. When not farming, Amanda enjoys reading, writing, and performing poetry, acting in improv groups, sitting on the couch with a crossword puzzle, cooking for friends and family, and crafting ever-more-delicious beverages.
