“I would find it hard to believe that anyone would be ‘for’ GMO’s. Why would you be? Why would anyone (even if they’re not a health nut) want to put something with the words ‘genetically modified’ into their bodies?” Dan Soulsby worked in Hollywood, but dreamed of returning to his native Ohio to start a farm. According to The Soulsby Farm’s website, his opportunity came during the 2007-2008 economic downturn that left him without his job and the impetus to move. Running his “very small farm” of under two acres with his wife Mindy, these two graphic designers by day are hoping not only to grow their own food, but to bring properly grown harvests to those most in need in their community via a non-profit, Project Garden Share.
“Living in LA, I really missed the country and I would read every book on farming, gardening, and sustainable living I could find. I missed the life so much, I would read books about small farms and watch DVDs of snowstorms – just a video of snow falling,” Dan wrote me during a lengthy e-mail exchange that dotted its way through the planting season. Mindy, however, had not been primed in her youth for this experience, “My wife was a city girl who was a bit scared about the idea of farming in the beginning. To my surprise, she was a quick learner and lover of the land.” After spending the first few days skittish around the chickens, she dove right in. “She is very patient and picks each vegetable and herb with TLC,” Dan said.
