Arrived back in Canada last night after my 8+ hr. drive from Saratoga Springs.  Concert was an amazing day with some musicians and performances I will never forget.  So many memories to share and the message is clear; we ALL need to be doing our part to support local farmers and to keep our earth a healthier environment for everyone.
