North Country Farmer to Discuss Her Path in 'Unconventional Careers' Series
The second installment of “Unconventional Careers in Anthropology and the Liberal Arts” will feature speaker Racey Henderson, a woman whose career evolved from international communications to a North Country farm, Wednesday, March 1 at noon in the Mowry Conference Room, Redcay Hall.
Henderson, co-owner of Reber Rock Farm, will discuss how her degree from American University in Washington, D.C., 17 years ago led her to a 120-acre draft-powered farm on the southern edge of the Rever Valley in Essex, N.Y., and a consulting career that brings her to small-scale farms in Africa for up to three months every year.
Henderson’s talk, “There’s Nothing Wrong With Changing Your Mind,” is free and open to the public and is supported by the SUNY Plattsburgh Departments of Anthropology, Gender and Women’s Studies, the Offices of the President and the Dean of Arts and Science, College Auxiliary Services and the Alumni Association.
