Organic Farmer at Ten Pines Farm

I do my best to clean air, through minimalist living and growing air purifying plants sustainably. I read / listen to pods, TED talks, lectures, audiobooks an average of 10 hours / day, and have maintained this regimen for 10+ consecutive years. Most days I do 18 hours. With that said I have an issue remembering most things, names, dates, specific data points all elude me. I currently live off of $120.00 / month in SNAP benefits, and am provided room and board in exchange for farm duties, I live alone and am able to maintain my meditative study during all of my farm tasks. This lifestyle has given me unique perspective and I tend to harbor opinions and angles on most topics. I have only a 4th grade formal education.
