Looking back on The Good Road Home with John Cardwell
Alicia is Farm Aid’s Advocacy & Farmer Services Director and guides the organization’s advocacy, research, farmer services and policy-related activities. Alicia was born in Exeter, New Hampshire and grew up in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, with the state’s beautiful rural landscape at her fingertips. Alicia has a masters degree in Agricultural & Environmental Science and Policy from the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. Her previous work includes research into U.S. farm household economics and a year spent interviewing farmers across several states for her undergraduate thesis. Alicia is a self-titled music junkie and when she’s not huddled at her desk working to music, she is probably teaching yoga, hiking, cooking, or traveling.
With your help, family farmers can fight... to stay on their land, to grow good food for all of us, to raise a new generation of farmers to take care of our soil and water.
