Photos: Table-to-farm talk

Participants in the Piedmont Environmental Council’s “Food for Thought” dinner, talk and tour get a firsthand look at what it means to support local farmers on Aug. 23 at Waterpenny Farm in Sperryville. The tour, which also took in nearby Heritage Hollow Farm, included talks by Waterpenny’s Rachel Bynum (in the purple jacket) and Heritage Hollow’s Mike Peterson (in red checked shirt). A PEC spokesperson said many of the 50 participants came from as far away as D.C. and Maryland to check out “the astounding farming practices coming out of Rappahannock County.”

  1. The PEC event is so important and generous I wonder why the participants were so few.
    How can this be fixed?
