We get many visitors to our sites that have our love of urban agriculture as a common bond. Additionally, we have been attract quite a number of folks who are avid bikers, and a gentleman from the Rotary Club was making a trek from the West Coast of the United States (where he dipped his back tire) to the East Coast (where he will dip his front tire), and decided to share his travels with us.
Included among the highlights of the talk included his gear, how he ate, how he kept safe driving (at times in not so safe conditions), and some of the amazing people he had met along the way (included the GTC Youth!).
