Friends of Grass
Several events based in Louisville this week aimed at improving life in cities through focused efforts on human health, healthy air, water and soil, and so, of course, on food and agriculture.
In advance of a closing keynote address on Friday, March 20, by Prince Charles, who is a long-term world leader on sustainable agriculture, the Prince's farm manager, David Wilson (below right) came to Kentucky. He visited farm and agriculture enterprises, and shared lessons from 30 years of organic production at Duchy Home Farm in the Duchy of Cornwall. The Duchy Home Farm is "A private estate established in 1337 which funds the public, charitable and private activities of the Prince of Wales and his family."
Much of a day of tours and learning focused on the central role of grass in sustainable agriculture.
