We are honored to share this blog by Scott Chaskey, farmer, poet, educator, and director of the Peconic Land Trust’s farm at Quail Hill. 

The wood waits, as if its most precious sap were stillness... (John Fowles)

Our first meeting is etched in my memory—that autumn when Josh Levine arrived at our farmshop in the beech woods, he was full of curiosity and passion for our community farm. Josh had an inherent tendency to dive into things: “How can I help…Can I volunteer today?”

 His enthusiasm, combined with an attention to detail, was  welcome, like a strong, fresh breeze off the Atlantic (a mile away  from Quail Hill Farm). He joined our team the following Spring, and those who met Josh on the farm and at the farmers’ market were  full of praise: he was energetic, committed, and he loved to  communicate about seedlings, plants, preparing food, caring for  the soil, and community agriculture.
