Something interesting in Paris.

So something interesting is taking place in Paris today. Farmers have come together to turn the famous French thoroughfare Champs-Elysees into a farm field for a couple of days.
The affair was organized by the an organization of young farmers
(Jeunes Agriculteurs), all under the age of 35! The object of the spectacle is to show us city folk how much work goes into food production, and to remind us of the importance quality ingredients from a good source.
This event is cool, though pushing it's own value at $5.2 million. What's amazing to me is that there are enough farmers in France under the age of 35 to pull this off. It kinda give us hope that the dirty job of food production is still kickin' and will continue to. We have many years of delicious food to look forward to . . . . in France anyways.

It's rumored that this same event will happen here in New York. I'll keep you posted if I hear anything more about that.
