The upcoming October issue of the WG&S magazine includes an article on sustainable agriculture that features two WG members -- The Nunes Company and Church Brothers -- and what each is doing to sell edible fresh produce items that were previously discarded or not harvested. Their innovative approaches to reducing food waste are stories worth telling, especially since they have the added benefit of being eco-friendly.
