Hanna is a sister, lover, daughter, and sociologist specializing in organic food systems. She is currently enjoying the privilege of homesteading off grid, allowing life to expand, and see what arises next on her path. Hanna has so much wisdom and insight to share, and I really hope you enjoy the show!
