Iola farmer Debbie Bearden is at a Salina symposium today for local food and farm councils.
Bearden says councils succeed by channeling peoples passions into community projects. The incentive to form a council comes from residents themselves recognizing that they can have a positive effect.
Facilitating these activities is the Kansas Alliance for Wellness a project of the Midwest Affiliate of the American Heart Association.
