A stalk of corn waiting for harvest started as a seed; how true, the community we all live in started as a seed  Today, everywhere we look, it becomes obvious we're planting the seed of a brighter tomorrow. In Africa, farmers markets give local vendors and farmers a place to come together and celebrate good, hard, honest work - it is truly the work done by the hands of local farmers.
