Chris and Susan Skellenger
Chris, long a fixture in the Leelanau County music scene, and his wife, Susan, have thrown their considerable talents and efforts into teaching folks to grow crops for consumption in a few corners of this troubled world. They are trying to smooth the rough edges. This is their mission statement:
"To provide services, equipment, and personnel to organizations that are dedicated to combating poverty in developing countries - especially those teaching sustainable forms of subsistence agriculture to the world's poorest people."
Visit their sight, go to the fundraisers, and, as you take your next bite at dinner, think of how you can help them see this noble mission through!!
