Cindy Conner founded Homeplace Earth to help people develop skills to live lightly in this world. She is working to promote local sustainable food systems. Since we all eat, we are all responsible for how the earth is used to produce our food. As a market gardener for 10 years, selling to restaurants, a CSA, and at farmers markets, Cindy recognized that a farmer could be organic and still not be sustainable.
