Are you a fan of local and community agriculture? If you’re like me, I love to hit the farmers market on the weekend in my town for a cup of coffee and a chocolate croissant and wander. While that habit is a lovely way to spend a morning, when we understand the potential impact of our choices, it becomes so much more. On this episode of the Southern Fried Girlfriends podcast, Jess Collett, Dee and I get into a great conversation about how our choices can support our health, the health of our communities, and economies.
She has worked in community and public health nutrition to implement and support nutrition programs that connect communities to healthy food. Ten years ago she was doing cooking demos at the East Atlanta Farmers Market. Currently she is a board member for Truly Living Well, a non-profit urban Ag organization empowering communities to grow food and/ or purchase directly from farmers.
