Talia & Tama, Fairfield Farming & beyond...

Join host, Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y.

This week Andrew Tint talks with two Fairfield natives, Talia Winningham and Tama Eagleson, about growing up in Fairfield, their farming internships, and their social justice work.

Talia Winningham spent the last three months interning for the Expedition Education Institute in Maine, which runs travel semester programs for college students based out of a retrofitted school bus. The programs incorporate a focus on the environment and sustainability as well as service projects and backcountry trips. While they didn't run a full semester while I was interning for them, they did run a 10-day program focused on climate change issues that I was the food-coordinator for. Before that internship Talia spent the summer working at an amazing summer camp called Tamarack Farm, which is a 7-week for camp for teenagers where they learn to operate a small farm, live in community and make consensus decisions, build things, cook.

Also joining Generation whY is Tama Eagleson. Tama moved to Olympia, Washington to be a paraeducator. Tama's program selects high school students to work on a local farm for a semester, doing everything from caretaking to learning about the environment. This is an interview you shouldn't miss, unless you're out farming.
