Last night I spent part of my evening learning about Montgomery County’s Agricultural reserve, at an event at Red Wiggler Community Farm, along with the authors of the Bread & Beauty cookbook and founders of Plenty Magazine. It was a great time with delicious food prepared by Watershed Cafe 👨🏻‍🍳 and meaningful conversations with friendly faces from the Clarksburg Chamber of Commerce 😀 Thanks to all who made me feel welcome!
