Happy Birthday

Our first post… it’s auspicious that we begin an online version of NY Local on George Washington’s 279th birthday. We’re celebrating one birth with another because the first president, longing for a different life in 1793, said “I would rather be a farmer than emperor of the world.” And he returned to farming when he retired from the presidency.

NY Local will explore the reasons why jobs in agriculture of all kinds, from compost to the consumer, can be rewarding and profitable; how life on the farm, in the city, and in-between is enhanced and sustained by local food, fuel and fiber.
