There is certainly value in the lived experience. I'm working on brainstorming up some potential avenues for pushing to get into this type of work. I'm hoping some things pan out for me! It's mostly just chance/who you know in most cases though. Although I'm going to keep trying!

Not sure if you're still answering, but!

I'm a farmer who's worked on a number of different types of farms. From permaculture farms, to larger scale organic market farms, botanical gardens, and indoor hydroponic greens farms. I've enjoyed my time in production, but am really interested in research ag. Do you think there are any solid ways for us working within traditional ag to transition into more research based field work besides grad school? Or luck? Obviously farming doesn't make me much money, so grad school is a tough option for me. But I'm really interested in practically working to change our food systems.

Thanks for the response, if you get time!
