    I have enjoyed shopping at the farmers market and feel rewarded that I finally treated myself to joining a CSA.  I have always wanted to join one and this really forced me to do the research and join. I think I will really enjoy the experience this summer.

    I had never heard of silvopasture prior to the eco challenge, but I think it's a great way to help preserve the environment and lessen the harmful impact (like CO2 production) humans can have.
