Local Farm Spotlight: New Orleans' Hollygrove Farms & Market

It's fun when work meets up with the things you're passionate about. This week, James "JB" Brown is heading to New Orleans to cover the Essence Music Festival for AARP.  Along the way, he's stopping to meet with folks who are making a difference.  I loved this video of his visit to Hollygrove Farm & Market - a neighborhood farm that is working to get fresh, local food to residents; promote sustainable agriculture and help seniors.  Check it out and let me know what you think.

Is there a farm or farmers market near you that you love?  Tell us about it in the comments.

To stay up to date on Hollygrove Farms, "like" them on Facebook.  To find a farm or farmers market near you, visit the USDA Farmers Market search or LocalHarvest.org.
