[slideshow]On Thursday, August 4, Faith Feeds held a field trip adventure from the 2011 Sustainable Agriculture Educators Association conference being held in Lexington this week. Faith Feeds Liaison, Shannon Baker, assisted in making this opportunity available. The group visited Seedleaf’s London Ferrell Community Garden and then join Faith Feeds in touring and gleaning at Reed Valley Orchard and Glen Abner’s farm in Paris, KY. It is a delight and honor to be a stop on the conference agenda.
