I hope you enjoyed a Thanksgiving full of good food, companions, and gratitude. The quiet of the day can give us a chance to stop and appreciate our good fortune but also all that goes into our fortune of good, healthy, delicious food. Lately, I’ve found I’m especially appreciative of people who are able to capture this gratitude in words and art. My friend Dave Madan (a shared harvest shareholder and founder/director of theMOVE) has created a short video with words from Martin Luther King that paints some of this picture. In the reflective farm volunteer experiences coordinated by theMOVE, Dave gives people a real sense and appreciation for the many people and places involved in the food on our plate.
