Noon Edition

Farmer and Food Security Advocate Marcia Veldman

It amazes me that so many people choose to be farmers. Because not only are you dealing with the vagaries of weather, [but also] the amount of hard work that's involved.

Marcia Veldman is the owner of Meadowlark Farm and the coordinator of the Bloomington Community Farmers' Market.

She is a founder of Green Drinks Bloomington, a monthly lecture series about sustainability, and she co-chairs the Green Sanctuary Task Force at the Unitarian Universalist Church.

She was named Bloomington's Woman of the Year for 2013.
