Bethel Erickson '07, October 21-22, 2010

Originally hailing from the mono-cropped farmlands of the Midwest, Bethel Erickson now resides in Waco, Texas as a self-proclaimed agrarian social worker for the Heart of Texas Urban Gardening Coalition. Since Luther, Erickson has since worn many hats as a counselor for ex-offenders on the South Side of Chicago, as a homeless outreach worker in Delaware, and eventually as a farmer at a lovely place called the World Hunger Relief Farm in Waco. A "mother" to many animals, she enjoys communing at potlucks, playing Scrabble, and swapping stories with grandmas and anarchists—all at the same time.
