I would like to thank you for drawing attention to the important issue of sustainable development in the profile, which Lorraine Ferguson wrote about me.
Despite the conceptual role I play in The Green Market, I really want to emphasise that my dreaming could not have become a reality without it being shared by lots of other people—including the advisory board, Santa Cruz neighbours, and most importantly the hard-working farmer/vendors and artisan/vendors who provide the products that our loyal patrons enjoy.
A shared vision unleashes everyone’s creative energy and fuels the transition from idea/dream to real community.
Many of our farmers are women and in this year of family farming, I would especially like for the Express to salute and applaud them for the work that they do.
Thanks for your interest and support.
