lizI’m Liz, welcome to my blog!
Firstly, In case you were wondering החקלאי (or HaHaklai) means ‘the farmer’ in Hebrew.
Here is a short time line leading up to this publication:

2000: I become a vegetarian!
Last meat consumption: popcorn chicken that my parents told me was vegetarian, but it wasn’t!

2003: My little sister was diagnosed with Diabetes.
Think you had mastered the no-carb craze of that time? Try living with a diabetic! You can’t beat the Traison’s when it comes to nutrition label knowledge!

 2005: The PLAN.
The results of my high school aptitude test said I was  destined to be a farmer or a rabbi. At first I was heartbroken over my prospected proletariat horizon, thinking that I had much greater aspirations than Mud and M’farshim (Jewish commentators). As short while later, I realized that the test knew what I hadn’t yet discovered; there is hardly a more spiritual experience than working in nature.

2008: Liz meets Michael Pollan. Not literally (I wish!).

2011: I become the director of recruitment for Amir!
Amir is a non profit organization that builds community gardens in summer camps, and uses the gardens as vehicles to teach campers about environmental issues, and other social injustices like hunger. Awesome! I know.
