As Executive Director of the National Young Farmers' Coalition, Lindsey talks about farming as a career path, which, once on the decline in the U.S., is now popular among young farmers - and how important it is for us to support them. She and her husband Ben run Hearty Roots Community Farm in Clermont, NY.
