So my family and I went to the Food Summit for the first time this year and were amazed by the quality of people we met and the quantity of people that want to contribute to their communities. We are so inspired by the speakers, organizations, and participants. Thank you to everyone who put this amazing event together and thank you for bringing such a wonderful group of people together!
I learned so much about organic farming and permaculture and want to put it to use to contribute locally. So I've decided to officially become an Alabama farmer. Look out for organic watermelons, honeydews and cantaloupes this next summer.
We talked with members of the Greater Birmingham Community Food Partners and came up with a forum for farmers, restaurateurs, organizations, local food advocates, community gardens, community members, etc. so that we can communicate better when it comes to local issues. If you're in the Birmingham area please take a look at the site and feel free to sign up. The site is ALfoodmatters.ning.com
Thanks to my sister Kristen for the design and layout.
