We have been CSA members for years and love Sandy's produce. What a loss it would have been if that land had been mined. I love the photo too--I took it!

Sandy is a person who believes in working for what is right (honest labor for healthy food). That she was rewarded with a fair outcome to this dilemma that was forced upon her amazes me in this era of corporate power. Remember the little guy can win, should win but it can be a painful, risky (and expensive)road. We should all take heart in this good news story.
