March Great Blog Challenge Winner

“Karen Weller from the Country Heart Spark Blog, wrote a magnificent story on the world she wants to create. You can read her post here: My Ideal World With Genuine Kindness and Heartfelt Compassion. Congratulations Karen!

Karen’s post was raw, authentic and fitting for her blog. It was a great interpretation of the March Theme “I want to create a world where…” and given how tough many farmers have it, I was deeply inspired by her dedication to supporting her community.”

Lee “Enjoy reading your reflections. I am not on the land anymore but relate strongly to your thoughts, actions and perspectives. As a CWA member, I am often surprised by the limited knowledge that people have of the work of CWA. I really liked your story about what CWA has meant to you and wonder if you would be alright about me sharing that with my branch. Reading it or perhaps even giving a copy? I will respect your answer either way, and of course, would acknowledge your writing.” 04/03/2019
