    Proposal abstract:

    The purpose of this project is to investigate the feasibility of having a fruit and vegetable garden and a roadside stand that will allow people to buy fresh local fruits and vegetables on their way home from work, school or shopping. It is my hope that once people taste the difference they will consider having their own small garden to begin growing at least some of the food they eat. We live on a state highway that is heavily traveled and my idea is to make local and fresh food convenient for those who travel past our farm each day.
