Doug Wilson graduated from Middlebury College in 2019 with a degree in International Politics & Economics focused in Chinese language and culture. From Vermont, he moved to the Eastern Shore of Virginia, where he worked on a 50-acre biodynamic farm, integrating practices including permaculture, rotational grazing, cover cropping, organic composting and biodynamic prep making to build soil health, grow a diversity of nutritious produce, care for an assortment of animals, and process herbal teas and remedies. Doug played 10 years of rugby throughout middle school, high school, and college, and enjoys spending time reading about history, ecology, plant intelligence, soil health, social and environmental justice, Chinese novels and legends, mythology, spirituality, culture, nutrition and cooking. He sees regenerative agriculture as essential for establishing sustainable, healthful relationships with nature, each other, our communities and ourselves. He strives to use food as a way to address the exploits and inequities in our local, national and global institutions, and is always looking for opportunities to apply and improve speaking, reading, and writing mandarin Chinese.
