Hi everybody! Well, take a look at the Lodi-News Sentinel today–Saturday, June 4th. In it you can see what some fine folks are doing to help me stay in Lodi and keep you supplied with fresh local produce! We all love Lodi and we care so much about our beautiful land and the benefits it gives us, whether we are in the city or on the farm. We care about a healthy Lodi and we want to do everything we can to keep it that way. Who wants food trucked in from thousands of miles away when we have so much potential right here? This is true progress–that we appreciate what we have been given and do not throw away the great benefits that are literally in our own backyards.We know that there is plenty of land all inside Lodi that is undeveloped and there should not be a rush to take irreplaceable farmland. And, why pick on the strawberry? So stay tuned for the next stage of this project–more exciting news will be added to my blog next week!
