Darby Weaver, Biodynamic Farmer and Homesteader

Occupation: Biodynamic Farmer and Homesteader


Residence: Wolcott, Vermont

Background: After growing up in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Darby attended Sterling College in Northern Vermont where she received a degree in Sustainable Agriculture. She has since spent the last decade growing Biodynamic produce in the Southeast and teaching holistic and ecological methods to learners of all ages and backgrounds through articles, agriculture intensives, workshops, and lectures.

Darby’s passion for this work is derived from an endless curiosity for the complex and dynamic relationships nature operates from. She finds her greatest meaning from sharing with others how to engage with these living systems to create nourishing food for the body and mind. Her most recent project finds her on 20 acres in Northern Vermont where she is developing an Agroecology system with her husband entitled Life Arises Farm.
