TPIE – One more from Day 2
We met some really great folks today. It is great to see how FAPC is working for our members, and they all seemed pretty excited to hear about the new blog. Yolanda and I were happy to talk with them and let them know about linking up their businesses to the blog – what a great way to help market Florida agriculture!
