Farming: not boring and ripe for change

@ VOL 49 ON JUL 03, 2018

A trip to Ethiopia 17 years ago lit a spark in Leah and paved the way for an interesting career in agriculture. As a farmer, she is passionate about living a sustainable life: how food is produced, how it impacts the earth and how people benefit.
