On the Commons with Martha Boneta Print

As I write this Louis Armstrong's, "What a Wonderful World" is playing in the background.  I listen to the words and in my mind's eye I see the green trees, the red roses and imagine them blooming for me and you.  I see the colors of the rainbow and the friends shaking hands, saying I love you and watching babies grow, oh, "what a wonderful world".  Then I have to wonder, why  we can't keep it that way?  Why do we allow a few bad apples to ruin an otherwise wonderful world?  Is there anything we can do to prevent that? But what can one person do?

 

Martha Boneta joins us On The Commons.  Martha's dream of becoming a farmer was realized when she and her family became the proud owners of Liberty Farm in her native Virginia.  However, it wasn't long before her dream was threatened by the overreaches of the environmental commission and her time was devoted to fending off their abuses, dictates and demands. Not one to roll over, Martha fought back - and she won.  Along the way she got two bills named after her, she is also the subject of a documentary film, "Farming in Fear", she has received numerous awards and has been named Most Amazing Woman by Country Woman's Magazine.  We talk to Martha about fighting back and learn what we, as individuals and as a group of homeowner advocates and activists, can do to fight back, protect our rights and our homes.  With all the tools available to us we don't have to roll over, we can fight back and then look at the skies of blue and the clouds of white and think to ourselves, "what a wonderful world".   . . . Listen to Martha Boneta . . .
