I have recently become involved with the Regional Farm and Food Project, a local nonprofit organization aimed towards advancing the farm-to-fork movement.
The Project has recently put together a Food Buying Habits Survey, to better determine what the community needs. We are possibly thinking of a daily farm market.
If you live the Albany/Saratoga/Glens Falls areas, I would urge you to please take 5 minutes to give us this important feedback.

Shaun Green, accused of participating in a home robbery, has been sentenced to 15 years, according to the Times Union, reported just a couple of hours ago.
Do I know him? No, not really. I was on his jury.
