This morning, Nolan and I sat down for breakfast and to record a short Road Snacks podcast. Nolan, along with co-managing Wealth Underground Farm, is also a graduate student in the Art and Social Practice program at Portland State University and is involved in a number of projects at the moment. Breakfast consisted mostly of ingredients grown on the farm; we had beets that are ovewintering nicely, eggs from our hens, and shallots. The result was a nice winter scramble. Along with a cup of tea for me and a cup of coffee for Nolan, we were set to record.
The projects we primarily talked about were Grocery Stories, which is an installation going into New Seasons stores, Farm School, which you can read more about here, and People's Portlandia, a project/event that I've previously mentioned on the podcast. If you have the opportunity to view or participate in any of these projects, I highly recommend it.
Thanks to Nolan for joining me and participating in the Farm to Artist project this morning. Be sure to listen to the podcast when it goes up and subscribe to it on iTunes. To see more of Nolan's work, primarily his photography, visit his website at nolancalisch.com.
