Junior Leadership Charlotte Tours Worden Farm November 04 2014

A special group visited Worden Farm for a farm tour today. The young men and women of Junior Leadership Charlotte learned about organic farming and community agriculture here in Charlotte County. Today, Dr. Eva Worden talked with the group about careers in agriculture, and Vanessa Bielema led them in a walking tour of some of our farm fields, teaching them about our organic crop production methods along the way. A favorite stop was picking sweet ripe cherry tomatoes.

The high school students who participate in this program receive exposure to a variety of aspects of our county, following the model of the Leadership Charlotte program of the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce. We at Worden Farm have proudly hosted both Junior Leadership Charlotte and Leadership Charlotte groups on farm tours for many years, and look forward to doing so well into the future. The success of our community is directly tied to widespread awareness and appreciation for how we all feed ourselves. We are honored to help educate our current and future community leaders about sustainable agriculture.

Organic Rising Film Trailer April 15 2014

Last season we were interviewed for a film, Organic Rising, by award-winning documentary photographer Anthony Suau. “Organic Rising is an eye opening journey into the heart of America’s organic food revolution. Through breathtaking imagery and insightful interviews the film both informs and engages questioning consumers as well as aspiring farmers.”

We are honored to have been included in this film, and excited to observe the reception it receives from the public.

The film’s trailer was recently released and you can view it online at: www.organicrisingfilm.com/trailer/
