One can envision an suburban community where the farm is a short walk down the street and families rely on the fresh organic ingredients it provides daily in their cooking. They learn to grow and harvest their own food and cook it as well. As mentioned in previous blog posts, easy access to quality vegetables is a key motivation for eating them. These conservation communities solve this problem in a big way!

“When I was a kid, almost every farm had a garden. Those are good memories for a lot of people — being in a garden with their grandparents or sitting around a table, shelling peas” with their parents. “People would like to recapture that feeling,” said Cleverley, who will likely help Hubbell develop the plan for the project’s organic farm.
