Lynchburg Grows

Lynchburg Grows, an urban farm who partnered with me to put on an excellent fundraiser in Lynchburg, VA, has completed a conservation easement on their 6.8 acre property.  This assures that their farm is forever protected from development and is another great step forward for Lynchburg Grows.  The articles below feature a number of great quotes from city officials which demonstrate the support that the City of Lynchburg has for the local food movement and for a great community organization.  Executive Director Michael Van Ness also tells me that they have recently been selling food to the local school districts.  A big thanks to the folks at Lynchburg Grows for all of the work they are doing.
