    It was a wonderful opportunity for WRDA members and others to learn about sustainable food systems from farmer/experts in Westchester and Rockland, and Columbia Counties.
    It was an honor to work with Mike, Doug, John, Joan, Jack and Steffen in coordinating the conversation. Can't think of a better way to bring in spring!

    I have notice of at least five other participants that attended our event, which then totals 103 attendees!
    A few people who attended have stayed in touch and have made some positive moves towards connecting with the land and farmers,and the community.
    Spring fostering hope, Diane
