What They Leave Behind

One of our interns in 2010 started a bit of a tradition here at Better Farm when he took his old pair of sneakers and tossed them way up onto the catwalk in the barn before making his departure. Since Joe Pintaudi made that toss, others have joined the ranks; leaving behind their old pairs of treads as they set off into the world.

So when intern Lizzi Musoke came to me the last month week saying she'd be leaving behind some boots and sneakers in order to avoid the obnoxious airline fee for extra suitcase weight, I told her I had a perfect place for her to stow her kicks.

And so it went.
