Just wanted to give you all a little update on what we have been up to!

We just had an incredible time at the Soil and Nutrition Conference in Massachusetts this week!

We met so many awesome people including David Montgomery, Anne Biklé, Tim LaSalle, Christine Jones, and Elaine Ingham.

Dan Kittredge, who is in the film, was there leading the event, as well as another familiar friend from the film, Doug DeCandia.

By the end of the conference, no one wanted to leave, as we had all created such a deep bond over our commitment to moving the needle forward in favor of better food quality grown in a way that benefits our planet and future generations.

At our table, we shared our passion and felt so much genuine support for this project and even shared some swag with them.

With all this pumped up energy, I rocked the group with a presentation titled "#GrowFood: Mobilizing The Movement." The whole experience was life changing. 

A woman came up to me after my workshop and told me that I am doing what I was meant to do - her expression went straight to my heart and will fuel me to see this movement through. Your support in this project will help carry this message through to the millions of people who need to hear it!

Keep an eye out for the recording of this presentation, where I walk through the most attention grabbing facts and statistics I have found and how to share them in your community and online. My challenge to the audience is to take action. My friend Duron Chavis says it so well:
