About nathanmccasland

After 20 years in residential construction and remodeling. For the last decade, I've known that I wanted to do something different as a career, but couldn't figure out what. It's only been within the last year or two that I finally figured out what I want to do "when I grow up," and why.

I've always been fascinated by science, AND come from a long line of farmers/country folk. I also love doing research (be it trial and error methods of doing things, or reading about ideas that I have, etc). Over time, I realized that I wanted to do scientific research based on something to do with current farming practices, so at 44 years of age, I decided to go back to school and pursue a degree in Environmental Science with the hope of getting into soil conservation or agroecological research (specifically pertaining to long-term ecological effects and environmental impact of herbicides, pesticides, and GMO and Bt crops). Science, research, farming, all wrapped up into one convenient niche package.
