RDG Associate Designer Rachel Lindsay will be teaching a Regenerative Farming course this Spring through the Wesleyan Institute for Lifelong Learning! Rachel, a Wesleyan alum, will draw on her experience in ecological design, food and farming, and community development to explore the relationship between sustainable farming and healthy communities.
