The If List

The IF List: Tonya Antle, Co-Founder, Organic Produce Network


t is said there are two types of people in the world, those who see the glass half full and those who see it half empty. However, I offer Tonya Antle as a third example, one who is simply grateful to drink from the glass. And drink in life she does! As a shining beacon of gratitude and wonder, Tonya takes us all on a journey through history, connection, and introspection with her IF List…
