A Radical Farm's Roots Stem From Revived Korean Heritage

Written by

Sometimes, finding your way home takes you to the other side of the world and back. That's the journey that brought Kristyn Leach, a Korean American who was adopted as an infant, back to the country of her birth, and then home again to Namu Farm in the San Francisco Bay Area. Built on about an acre of Alameda County's publicly supported urban farmland, her tiny farming venture has combined two farming cultures in a method of small-scale agriculture known as "natural farming."
