Red CloverMichelle Louise Bicking is Executive Director of Hidden Acres Farm, Inc., and is a licensed clinical social worker with over 20 years of direct service experience serving socially and economically disenfranchised youth and families in urban and rural communities throughout the US Northeast. She believes that farming is a natural extension of her role as a professional caregiver. She and Eric talk about what drew her to the practice of herbalism, how working the land can anchor people in their psychological healing, and how histories of migrant work or slavery can impact people’s relationship to farming and land-based work, among other things.
