You can find us EVERY Saturday till 12 noon at the corner of Walker and Elam Avenue at The Corner Farmer's Market.
I recently confirmed a suspicion, thanks to the folks in the local Agricultural Extension Office, that I am the leader in urban agriculture in Greensboro. Weird. A state with a long tradition of agriculture, excellent soils to work from, temperate climate, and plenty of folks interested in food.
Either I am an anomaly (OK, so that one is a given), or
I need to find some more friends in the city and get them to DO urban agriculture. Anyone interested? Seriously, I could do with some company. Makes life much more interesting.
I wonder if a craigslist advert is required
