I love fresh, local food and have been a huge advocate for the local food movement for the past 5 years. I was on our state’s farmers’ market board, started and managed markets in two towns, and helped several other communities start markets. I grew produce to sell at these markets in my own little garden world. I speak at farmers’ conferences in an effort to help them market and promote their businesses more effectively.
I traded produce with farmers who grew things I did not,
planned events from music to a children’s garden,
met and became friends with some of the best, most down to earth people you will ever meet. Yes, farmers.

Then, we moved. I love our new town and our new home. But, I lost my farming for market capabilities due to the lack of land.
Until we meet again.
Alright, I know in reality I will be all up in the local food movement, just not as an active farmer.
Go out and support your local farmers at the market,
