Growing Food and Touching Lives

Over the past four and a half decades, Michael O’Gorman’s farming ventures have involved thousands of partners. Growing food for the nation’s largest intentional community, partnering on a family farm, pioneering the locavore movement in the San Francisco Bay Area, and managing some of the nation’s largest organic farms across six U.S. states, 13 counties in California, and four states in Mexico. Now he works with military veterans in all 50 states. Michael will lead a panel of people whose lives were touched and changed by these outwardly different farm operations. Farmworkers, small producers in Mexico, successful new farmers, and veterans turned farmers will talk about how farming transformed and empowered them.
