Introducing Serve Your Country Food, a promising new website intended to encourage "thousands of new growers of fruits, nuts, vegetables, grains, dairy, and livestock to transform the landscape of sprawling development and corporate control into a
dignified, livable, and culturally rich mosaic of ecological farming."
How? By inducing young "rock star farmers" to sign up and be counted, help create databases and maps, learn how to talk to the media, and more.
Granted, there are some really impressive young growers out there, like Rob at One Straw Revolution, profiled here on the Rant, who reminds me of singer Michael McDonald. But why only YOUNG farmers? Surely some of these new growers are Boomers, right? Harrumph.
Thanks to Mr. Subjunctive for the tip.Posted by Susan Harris on November 8, 2008 at 2:07 am, in the category Eat This.
