M's Organic Farm

M is so cool.  Met her at the Logan Square Farmers Market, (Sunday's at the square from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM). 
Her farm is out in Woodstock, which is a really neat town north and west of Chicago.  Paul Neuman got his start
in the theater out there.  It's a county seat so has a nice big town square

Radical Root

In the segment below, an up and coming organic farmer, Alex Needham from Radical Root talks about the
operation he and his wife Alison Parker have carefully cultivated and expanded over the years. When this
video was shot last year they were at the Liberty Prairie incubator farm in Grayslake but have since graduated
to their own farm in Libertyville.
