Famous People-The list
I want to thank all of you who responded and especially that gentleman who
flamed me and started this very interesting dialog. I feel it is only fair
to reveal what my purpose is for compiling this list.
I help plan a very large sustainable farming conference that happens
annually in Pacific Grove, California called the Ecofarm Conference. During
a planning meeting we were trying to think of a celebrity speaker to mix
among the more conventional speakers. We feel farmers enjoy and respect the
endorsment of famous people. It is a sign to some of us that we are going
mainstream after all of these years. It is also a sign to the public that
organic food is not only safe for us and the environment it's also "cool".
Celebrity endorsment has sold many products and that is a farmers goal.
Selling organic is also the goal of many of you wonderful non-profits out
there saving the world. Celebrity endorsement can also attract the press and
we the committee for the Ecofarm Conference want to see news of our
conference and sustainable agriculture in the local media. As a bonus there
is entertainment value.
OK enough jabbering. Thanks again, it is truelly a pleasure to hang with
