When he's crouched over a shovel with rain leaking down the back of his neck, journalism graduate Aaron Munzer, 22, has moments when this romantic idea of becoming a farmhand in Hawai'i palls a little. But Munzer, who a couple of weeks ago began seeding an Advertiser blog called "On the Farm," is passionate about farming and sustainability.
