"BCB, who calls herself a modern shepherdess, straddles many worlds. She guides herds and flocks based on their ancient eating habits. Yet she’s also firmly planted in the contemporary world of business, with plans for crowdfunding and a business consultant to help her start a contract grazing herd that will eat fire fuel and promote soil health. "

BRITTANY COLE BUSH | West Marin & Orcas Island by: Natalie so, Edition Local

"Every spring, as tangerine poppies, Indian paintbrushes, blue lupines, and Douglas Irises emerge in a coastal chorus of California wildflowers, and patches of young nettles and Indian lettuce begin to sprout, BCB arises from winter hibernation in her Orcas Island cabin, migrating south to the Bay Area where she spends spring and summer. BCB is a shepherdess and leatherworker who moves and works according to the seasons, and spring is the season when pasturing begins. “I go where the seasons take me, where community takes me,” she says."
