Here's some great news: Bloomington's own Susan Welsand (also known as The Chile Woman) is one of ten finalists for Green America's People and Planet Award.
Finalists for this award are expected to represent an overall green way of doing business, and also to "shine in their commitment to a sustainable food system."
We urge you to take a moment to read her story and cast your vote for this very worthy recipient. Deadline is May 31st. If you wish, please share with family and friends at your web page, or through Facebook and other social media.
Here's an article about The Chile Woman at Earth Eats. Among other community contributions, Susan is a longtime participant in our annual August Salsa Contest, serving as a judge. And you can meet Susan each week in person at the Bloomington Community Farmers' Market!
