According to the site, “agriculture and the grocery industry is 30% of Alabama’s economy and employs [more than] 200,000 people.” This means that their argument is that it’s a good thing for Alabama if you eat at home instead of eating out.

Turkey Creek gets an ecoscape


As promised in our post last week, the first of three ecoscapes developed by the Southern Environmental Center made its public debut on Saturday morning at Turkey Creek Nature Preserve.
