Kellie Pettyjohn

Kellie Pettyjohn is owner/operator of The Wily Carrot, a small, organic vegetable farm and co-owner of the new Mancos Valley CSA.  Prior to farming, she dabbled in homeland security, international conservation and Antarctic janitorial services.  She has always been fascinated with the relationship between humans and the land.  After studying Anthropology and Journalism in college she had planned on traveling the world, collecting stories.  Now, she hopes to bring that curiosity about our connection to the land and our sense of place to The Big Fat Farm Show.

The term "food justice" refers to a community's right to grow, sell, and eat healthy food that is fresh, nutritious, affordable, and culturally-appropriate. In this three-part series, Big Fat Farm Show host Kellie Pettyjohn talks with people who are all working in different ways to address the issue of food justice in their communities. These individuals were all part of recent food justice workshops that were held at Fort Lewis College on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

In the third and final part in this series, Kellie talks with Stephanie and Amanda from Project Feed The Hood, an Albuquerque organization working to provide lower income neighborhoods access to healthy foods.
