Shanti is living just outside of Prescott, AZ growing 8 acres of vegetables, flowers and dry beans with her husband and family.  She and her husband, Cory, have an 80 family CSA, sell at 3 farmers markets and a few local restaurants.  They are involved with agricultural education through a seasonal farm internship program and class field trips of all ages.  In addition, Shanti has taught a few courses at Prescott College.  She “still loves growing food more than anything and is so grateful to be spending her life farming (and raising kids too).”
