Mourning the Loss of Nancy Jones-Keiser: Organic Farmer, Educator, Activist, and Friend

Many of us in Michigan are mourning the loss of Nancy Jones-Keiser, who passed away on Monday, September 28th 2009. Nancy was a longtime activist and educator, and an organic farmer who worked tirelessly and selflessly to promote local and organic food and farming, natural health, and democracy - often with her husband Paul Keiser. Her contributions to the movement were extraordinary, and she was a wonderful woman of great intelligence, compassion, and spirit. She was also a personal friend to both of us here at beginningfarmers.org, with whom we had the pleasure of working closely for a number of years on the Michigan Organic Food and Farm Alliance Board of Directors. To read more about Nancy, see the Post on the Sweetwater Market Website. Jim and I are deeply saddened by her loss, and we will both miss her very much.  We offer our heartfelt condolences to her family and her friends. Sincerely, respectfully, and with a heavy heart, Taylor Reid
