    A late night dinner @ Avec with some of the principles tells me we're on to something interesting. Besides the food, the panels for the expo are filled with dynamic and inspiring people and thoughts.

    Enough to make this old activist feel a bit more hopeful. There actually are selfless people out there working for change in sensible ways that may even see the light of day if we're lucky. All and all, a good cause to support.

    Alan,

    As much as I'm looking forward to the Localicious Party, its the panel discussions that provide the real meat and potatoes, sustainably raised of course, to the FamilyFarmed Expo.

    Enjoy,
