Love your local farmers market? Well, tell everybody so by voting at the American Farmland Trust. When you get to the site, click on the map or zoom in to find markets to vote for. (I do wish they had a simple list by state, along with votes, but that’s a quibble.)
As I write this, the Lawrence Farmers Market has just three votes, but that’s more than they have in Topeka or Merriam. Lots of markets haven’t signed up yet to participate, and if yours hasn’t you can find information on the site to give to the market manager and to promote voting for your market.
The vote, of course, draws attention to the American Farmland Trust, a nonprofit that works for farmland preservation and a worthy outfit for your attention. Now, go vote!
