For Crystal, agricultural work is a therapeutic process that is rewarding both physically and mentally. She has enjoyed being a part of the Farmer Frog community because of the supportive nature of the people involved that model what sustainable farming can look like for others. Crystal finds joy in beekeeping because it keeps her grounded, and she also enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She is inspired by work that creates tight-knit communities and is motivated to model what contribution to others can look like. She hopes that Farmer Frog’s work can support the empowerment of BIPOC farmers to reclaim land and foster independence.
