In this episode of "Dandelions: A Podcast for Women," Julie and I chat with two women, Katie Rose and Amy Scales, who are neighbors in the heart of the city, but spend much of their lives working on a farm, incorporating the fruits of a farm into their work and life, and / or reminiscing about growing up on a farm.

After living with her family on a farm that didn't have indoor plumbing for years, Katie Rose went on to co-open a restaurant and bar, Goodkind, where she draws on her passion for farming and nature every single day.

Amy Scales' husband, an IT professional at the time, had a calling to be a farmer, and she – along with their two young children – supported his vision with The Scales Family Farm.


It's an episode of laughs, contrasts and storytelling and one that will inspire every city dweller to experience more of the natural world, however it is available to them.
