Market to Market

Johanna's painting "Farmstand" was used on the cover of the just published book by Merry Stetson Hall- BRINGING FOOD HOME: THE MAINE EXAMPLE. "It weaves together the narrative derived from about 100 interviews with Maine's farmers, gardeners, fisherfolk, and local food advocates. The picture that emerges reveals how small family farming in Maine has developed into an integrated ecological, economic, educational, political, philosophical, and community building phenomenon. It shows how the local food community can help to bring healing to the earth, healthful food to our tables, sanity to our economics, sustainable prosperity to our communities, and a peaceable lifestyle to humanity."
