VELD's Vrijdag Verses

I dug my thesis out today to remind myself of all the work, research, and knowledge that went into that book!  It’s 1inch thick, 235 double sided pages, 3 professor advisers, 18 years of farm life, 1 years worth of work! For those who are curious, you can download it here.

Agritechture: Woven Lea Farm

Agritecture: Woven Lea Farm

As I was leafing through the pages I read some of the amazing quotes I found in my research travels.  I included them in my thesis because they tugged at my heartstrings. So I am going to share them with you in hopes they inspire you to keep up the amazing work you do as farmers!

And just to add a bit of dutch They are going to come out on Vrijdag (Fridays)! But my ducth is not good enough to translate the quotes, sorry.

Here’s the first one that sets the stage for my thesis:

“Underlying all that I have achieved – such as it is- are my memories of my father’s ranch, where I spent my childhood and adolescence. In my work I have always striven to adopt the magic of those remote nostalgic years to the needs of modern living.” Emilio Ambaz, Argentine Architect

Enjoy and please share any good ones you find with me!
