Fine's focus for 15 years has been sustainable living for regular folks, including his Boston Globe bestseller Farewell, My Subaru. Doug has cultivated hemp food for farm-to-table products and seed-building in six U.S. states and assisted multiple Native American Tribal projects. His own hemp seeds have been used to clean soil in a New Mexico university study. In addition to his own crops, he advises clients worldwide on regenerative hemp and polyculture.
