I’m pleased and humbled to have been featured in one of two member profiles in the Alabama Sustainable Agriculture Network’s spring 2019 newsletter. I’ve been glad in recent years to see the emergence of organizations like ASAN, even though I’m not a farmer/producer by trade, because the benefits of sustainable agriculture are so painfully obvious— for our health, our economy, and our environment. The member profile relates mainly to my work with the school garden project, which is my small contribution to edging us closer to that better way of living.
If you’re not a member, or even don’t know about ASAN, take a look at their website and consider joining. Membership is affordable, the information is useful, and the program offerings are substantial and varied. There are events, including noes hosted by partner organizations, all over the state.
