Farm Like an Art Form with Valerie Dantoin

February 16, 2018

Valerie Dantoin is a farmer, environmentalist, and teacher. She wants us to think of farming more like an art form, less as an industrial activity. "Technology keeps fixing problems that we create," she notes. Her goal is to farm in concert with the environment, rather than in a controlling way.

As an instructor in sustainable food and agricultural systems at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, she is helping create career paths for students who want to become farmers, or become closer to the land.
