Linton Hale is a data analyst, dad, musician and writer. He’s always loved sharing music and helping to build community. In recent years he’s been looking for community in Sonoma county, and wanting to learn more about how best to prepare his family for the roller coaster ride of economic and environmental changes underway. He recently joined the Sebastopol Grange, and is enjoying meeting other folks who share his love of old-fashioned food and the small-scale farmers who grow it, close to home.
