I have worked for more than 35 years as an agricultural journalist in jobs ranging from large PR agencies, to Land-Grant institutions to my current 'second career' as an Editor for Farm Press Publications. I am considering a second retirement and am looking for freelance assignments that will allow me to use my experience and skills to continue to communicate with people who love to grow things. In my current position, I write for print media, social media--blog, twitter, website and cover most topics that involve growing crops. Many of the stories I run across, especially organic crop production, aren't suited to my current publication, but would be ideal for gardeners and small acreage farmers. And, many of the topics I cover in my current job are easily adapted to gardening, which is really small scale farming.
