How to play with your self: Life lessons from former farm girls


Our presentation will be a mix of transcendentalist philosophy, barnyard sense, semi-autobiographical revelations, and sage advice, shared not for personal gain but for the greater good of our fellow urban dwellers. We intend to reveal the little known but vitally important correlations between growing up rural, Ralph Waldo Emerson, the joys of ‘alone time,’ and the key to happiness.

Jennifer Allen & Dana Hinger


Jennifer Allen grew up in rural Oregon. Dana Hinger grew up in rural Utah. Both enjoy bacon and noting how their lives in Portland are different than back on the farm.
