National exposure for local efforts

The local food effort started by Tim Will in Rutherford County continues to gain momentum. it received more national exposure in Parade Magazine yesterday. This comes on top of continuing exposure provided by state leaders and the efforts of a dedicated group in Rockingham Stokes and other Piedmont Counties. There were over 80 attendees at the Piedmont Local Food meeting this past week and they now have over 40 members. I believe this is just the beginning and as the efforts grow, much more of our food will come from local sources. This is a great sign for local farmers and potentially rural areas all over America.
Thanks Tim, Brenda, Michael and everyone that has a hand in this important program.
