I finally met one of my heroes in person at the Sustainable Agriculture Conference last month: Fawn Pattison. She's a Senior Advocate for Toxic Free NC. She's a fabulous organizer who is smart, funny, and warm. She stopped by Quail Ridge Books & Music when I was there for Shop Small Saturday last week. Here's a picture of Fawn with Quail Ridge Books' Angel Tree, which lets customers give books to needy children. Fawn has her own serious little angel with her.
