For Ivanna, working at Farmer Frog is a way to spend a block of time working outside, utilize underused muscles, and collaborate with a wonderful group of people after a week of largely sedentary remote work. She looks forward to it every week and finds that it is a meditative experience just being on the grounds, which are welcoming and thought-provoking. Farming allows her to have a greater understanding of and respect for our food systems, manual laborers, and the food itself. Ivanna recently started working as an Occupational Health Research Assistant with OHSU after spending a year and a half as a contact tracer for the Snohomish Health District. She enjoys bike riding, cooking, and exploring the region in her spare time.
