Alicia Lopez is a family support specialist at Mt. Hood Community College. She has a small homestead just outside of Portland that features a large garden and several goats. As a child in Mexico, Alicia helped tend to her fathers large goat herd. She brought her love of animal husbandry with her when she moved to the United States. She tells a story about her family and the goats with which she grew up. The story was recorded at KBOO Community Radio in Portland, OR.
This is the second episode from our series, Inheritance Stories: Latino Voices on Farming, Culture, and Ecology. In October and November, we created an Inheritance Stories exhibit that featured immersive listening station containing portraits and stories in Spanish and English from food and farm workers, organizers, chefs, educators, entrepreneurs, and gardeners. Alicia was recently featured on Think Out Loud where she talked about the Inheritance Stories project.
“My dad has health issues but he still has around 50 goats. Sometimes when I have issues with my goats I call him and ask for advice.”
