Guest expert, Alice Hill, shares her perspective on how small, agricultural production can feed rural America's small towns. Earlier in her career, she grew wheat and raised cattle in Kansas. Then, she switched to organic wheat. Now, instead of selling to large, unknown markets, she produces food for her small, agricultural, Kansas community. She spends two days a week running a grocery store where people can meet, mingle, and purchase her products. And demand is growing as people come from nearby towns. Alice is convinced that rural America can start feeding itself again and she is excited to share everything she has learned. She even invented the topless greenhouse to extend the Plain States growing season. Check out her book for all the details.
