Marsha: I would like it very much to go to a person or organization that has a deep respect for land, and the beauty of the place.
Marsha: Well, I have been interested in alternative medicines for a really long time, ever since I moved to California which was in the 70's.
Marsha: I never really fully intended to be a farmer, per se, but I just kind of fell in love with it and it becomes a passion.
Marsha: There just aren't that many parts out there for women my age, that are challenging and interesting.
Marsha: I moved from California to New Mexico in 1993. So I've been there 15 years now. I just decided I really wanted to get out of LA. I wasn't sure where I would go. I decided to symbolically throw up the pieces of my life in the air and see what pattern would come down.
