Bill Thompson, Folklife Farm

It was a cold and icy winter day when Bill Thompson was going to meet me at the KHSU studio for our interview…he said he’d be riding in on the back of a motorcycle…I didn’t sleep well the night before, imagining a motorcycle careening over icy streets to get to the KHSU studio on an early winter morning, Bill Thompson clinging on to the back.  I called Jessica and we decided to make a field trip (after all, we were the ones with an actual car…and we had heat!).  An enjoyable morning was spent eating Bill’s homemade cookies and talking to him about land trusts and his newly created Folklife Farm in Bayside.
