Thank you to @sprocketmuralworks for orchestrating this incredible endeavor! Thank you for transforming the world around us and thanks for the opportunity to participate. Pa Preferred is the state of Pennsylvania’s marketing program for local food and farms. Our goal is to educate consumers about the importance of buying local. We also work with the men and women who first served our country before starting farms. The Homegrown by Heroes label is how you can identify products that were grown and produced by farmer veterans. When we joined forces with Sprocket we talked about the power of local food, connecting our community with Pennsylvania farmers; identifying a location near the @broadstreetmarket made sense since it is our oasis of locally sourced food here in Pennsylvania’s capital city. We also discussed the positive impact that farming can have on veterans and their families who have already sacrificed so much. So, when we learned that the Army Navy store was open to our theme it all seemed to serendipitously come together. And then, the magic happened..... @garfield_of_dreamz and Emmaline imagined, created and installed the most amazing representation of our theme! PAPreferred would like to thank and applaud these two extraordinary artists for creating this work of art. It so beautifully captures the bounty of Pennsylvania agricultural and the power of farms to sustain us and bring us home. Thank you both for the hard work you put into this and for sharing your gifts and talents with our community. Please always support your local farmers and look for PA Preferred where you shop. May this mural be a constant reminder of the collective power we have to save Pennsylvania farmland.
