THE ON-LINE MARKET IS OPEN AT AUGUSTA LOCALLY GROWN
As I type this message into my little phone, I am also listening. Listening hard and tearing up, in fact, because the keynote speaker at this conference where I find myself today is singing our song! She’s Dr Daphne Miller, author of “Farmacology: What Innovative Family Farming Can Teach Us About Health and Healing.” Her powerful, science-based message — the ancient message that good food is medicine — is THE theme that will ultimately link Augusta’s strong medical community to our fledgling local foods movement. If you haven’t read it yet, please please do. THIS can be Augusta’s future if enough of us stand up and make the connection.
- Cheers! Kim
