What other food and agriculture organizations are you involved with?
I produce and host a web show called The Natural Princess that encourages people to know where their food comes from, to know what's in it, and to savor the flavors of fresh, local ingredients. I also write a blog called Local Food Rocks. And, I write for the website Local In Season.
Each red dot on this Census of Agriculture map represents 20 farms that are no more, and each blue dot represents 20 new farms. In just five years, the US experienced a net loss of 90,000 farms. (Download as a PDF to magnify.)
