Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm Ariel, a feral agrarian with an interest in human and ecological flourishing.
I grew up unschooled in the wilds of the rural Southeast. In college, I studied agroecology and psychology while working with community gardens and private farms. So far, I've grown produce and raised livestock for families, five star restaurants, and tech companies.
For 2 1/2 years I lived and grazed cattle on Pepperwood Preserve in Sonoma County, California. Recently, I began as Grazing Manager at Freestone Ranch. I also manage the orchard at Occidental Arts and Ecology Center and work with Fibershed.
I am interested in soil, scale, psyche, sovereignty, and perceive most of human suffering as rooted in resource insecurity. As such, my aim in life so far is to work with people, plants, and animals to revitalize the land within my care.
