Sustainable Farming: Meeting His Royal Highness, Charles, The Prince of Wales


Recently, His Royal Highness, Charles, Prince of Wales visited a local DC farm, the Common Good City Farms, (the only such farm in DC). My life-partner, Tom, had told me The Prince would be there, so being not only a royal enthusiast, but also a climate change advocate, I had to try to meet His Royal Highness as he too is a proponent of global warming issues.

I was not disappointed. He shook my hand and we spoke for about a minute on climate change issues. He then said, "But is anyone listening? [about climate change]" to which I replied, "We're making progress. They will listen..."

God bless the Prince of Wales!
