This week Ivy Slater, host of Her Success Story, chats with her guests, Elizabeth Keihmis & Dr. Jody Gangloff-Kaufmann. They talk about the mission and ministry of Homecoming Farms, the experience that their farm provides through their CSA and educational programs, and the magnitude of people they reach by partnering with other nonprofits in the area.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • The mission and ministry of Homecoming Farms, and how it was established
  • What their CSA offers, and how it contributes to the community
  • What educational programs they provide, along with the help of Cornell University
  • How they partner with other nonprofits like The Interfaith Nutrition Network, The Opening Word, and the good work they do together
  • Who they feed, and how they feel about it
  • What drove Jody not to just sign up on a CSA, but to get involved on the board of directors
  • Where Elizabeth’s interesting background started, and her moving journey to Homecoming Farm
  • What are Ivy’s suggestions in supporting the farms in your own community
