Special E-Blast  

                                                   May 2014 

On the weekend of May 17-19, 1991 at the Highlander Center in New Market, Tennessee, 25 people representing 17 organizations founded the Southern Sustainable Agriculture Working Group (SAWG). Their intent was to give Southerners a say in how they wanted to solve agricultural and rural problems in the South, and give farmers the lead role in the process of making Southern agriculture more sustainable.


That was 23 years ago this week and so much has happened in those twenty three years. I was so excited that I decided to write a poem about it. With the help of our staff, board and volunteers we created a little YouTube video. Please take a minute and twenty-eight seconds and check it out below.
