I have spent the weekend at the Southern Foodways Alliance in Oxford, Mississippi. What an amazing event! Here is a gathering of people all passionate about food and interested in supporting personalized, localized agriculture and food preparation.

Presentations ranged from Shirley Sherrod’s talk on the difficulties faced by black farmers in the south both in the past and today and Rashid Nuri’s talk about his Truly Living Well initiative in Atlanta.

Congratulations to John T. and his team for an incredible event.
