If you’re new to the Audra Mulkern fan club, welcome! Audra is a writer, photographer, and fair food advocate who is bringing farming and females to the forefront through the lens of her camera.
In addition to authoring Rooted in the Valley, a book highlighting food growers in Carnation and Duvall, Audra is also the brains behind the Female Farmer Project, a chronicle of in-depth stories about the rise of women in agriculture around the world. The Female Farmer Project has garnered international recognition, and has been featured in publications such as Huffington Post, Modern Farmer, and grist.
We have had the privilege of working with Audra over the last number of years, and are thrilled to partner with her on her upcoming exhibit celebrating local farms through photography. Her photos chronicle female farmers who, amidst many pressures — family, farm duties, often an outside job — are creating positive change in our food system. Many of her photos feature farmers from our conserved properties, and a portion of Audra’s proceeds from sold photographs will benefit PCC Farmland Trust.
Please join us and Audra Mulkern on August 4th during the First Thursday Art Walk at the Globe Gallery. See our Events page for details.
