Farmers in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula often struggle to make a living as poor soils, epic snows and a fleeting growing season threaten their livelihoods. However, women like Landen Tetil are working towards a more food secure future. Landen was the sole participant in an incubator farm project that provided her with training and tools to overcome punishing climate extremes and start a professional enterprise. She now grows 147 varieties of crops, most of them outside, and provides her community with fresh food. Photo credit: Civil Eats
