Ariel Greenwood calls herself a “feral agrarian”- one who works at the intersection of agriculture and the wild. Currently she is the resident grazier at a research preserve where she manages a herd of cattle to restore its grasslands as part of Holistic Ag. She is also orchard manager at the renowned Occidental Arts and Ecology Center and blogs at ArielGreenwood.com but she is hard to capture in words. She grew up unschooled in the wilds of the rural Southeast. In college, she studied agroecology and psychology while working with community gardens and private farms. She has grown produce and raised livestock for families, five star restaurants, and tech companies. And she has strong opinions about many things related to restoring grasslands and raising cattle – among other things.  And I want to hear as many of them as I can.
