Obviously, most of you don't get it. You criticize without even knowing all the facts! Scotmil, learn something about urban growth boundaries, hood river mom, why are you exposing your family to toxics? jacob, why does it have to be either/or? Who on earth only buys fresh local produce once/year? A farm is not open space, its a farm and he's growing PRODUCE, not cows or pigs! Why would anyone in their right mind buy a house next to a farm and not know what the impacts are? And organic farming without pesticides is the way to go. Ask his neighbors, they love living next to the farm. Buy from a farmer, not the farmers market where they take a cut from the farmers and they have to truck their food over there. How many people do you know that don't have at least one car? Come on get real!
Now, if we can find common ground, instead of criticizing and finding fault in everything, we may have an opportunity to build community and keep growth contained and eat some good food!
What's wrong with that?
