September 22, 23, Allegan, Michigan
Tina and I drove through Allegan meeting with people, sharing the concept of the farm project. Everywhere we went, we hear the chorus, “I love it!” We visited Amy Oliver at the Allegan School District office. We visited Kevin Ricco with Allegan County Parks Department and Economic Development. We visited MSU Extension. We visited Anne Marie with the Allegan County Soil Conservation District. We got tons of resources and made great contacts. I even got to talk to Mr. Skibbe, my old science teacher from L.E. White Junior High School. He is so enthusiastic and was great fun to talk with. It is so much fun to have someone call you “kiddo,” and mean it.
