Summer Update: Daniel
My life on the farm has been active and gratifying these summer months, as we install a permanent fencing paddock network for our rotational grazing system, which sequesters carbon back in the soil, at the same time that it meets human needs for nutrient-dense food. I have also been active in supporting our son Simin's Fridays for Future (#climatestrike, #fridaysforfuture) weekly climate strike event in our small town of Viroqua.
My wife Dayna and I are part of a forming local chapter of Extinction Rebellion, which is planning on a regional convergence in Chicago in October for a global period of action. The strategy of XR is to peacefully disrupt global financial centers, and demand truth-telling and appropriate emergency responses from governments on the climate crisis. When I am not at work milking cows or doing construction, my life is full with the family activities of fishing, foraging, camping, cooking, summer chores and reading.
