Photo 2: Lauren Ruhe of Vancouver works in August at April Joy Farm in Ridgefield. The 26-year-old started an apprenticeship with the farm a little over a year ago and recently leased her own piece of land in the area to start her own farm. “Healthy eating had always been really important to me. I really like educating people on where their food comes from, plus I love being outside,” Ruhe said. “It’s super rewarding to me to just be outside every day.” Photo 3: Kelly Peters, 34, and her partner, Patrick Dorris, 33, pictured in August, farm a 1-arce plot of land at Heathen Estate in Vancouver.
