I find myself behind once again on blogging ... but this girl said it's ok because I was busy scratching her... ...

Sooo I got home from the food justice conference re-energized by both the conference as well as the visits to my farmer friends - I got to see Lisa of Sweet Well Farm and got to see the farm and evening milking and share a meal at her table... I left with my arms full of her raw milk dairy products and humbled once again by a farmer - her hand made camembert was truly amazing!!! - I also had the honor and delight to visit my friends Tyler and Alecia at Afton field who graciously hosted me over night I got to wake up to a farm breakfast, good company and baby lambs which really can't be beat!

Lisa and one of her teams...

Tyler and Alicia

This is Vandana Shiva it was such an honor to meet her at the Food Justice conference.

I was graciously hosted by the confrence in this very nice hotel room.

It was pretty thrilling to see my painting projected and reproduced all over the conference : )

The art show at the conference was really well done and a terrific group of participating artists.

And last but not least the snow and levi looking very cute and kissing the cows instead of herding them... happy spring.. may it come soon...
