Food for Thought

 
The inspirational power of a good idea is constantly amazing.  Consider the case of California organic farmer Michael O’Gorman, who put together two seemly-unrelated trends: the aging of American farmers and the high unemployment among returning military veterans. 

What if the vets – often from rural communities themselves – could be mentored by older farmers for a peacetime career in agriculture?  From that idea came the Farmer Veteran Coalition (farmvetco.org).  Everybody wins.  (Thanks to Joan Bien of AARP Magazine for bringing this to light!)
