We love innovative ideas and were happy to find out about Melissa Miller, manager of Common Good City Farm in Washington, D.C..  Melissa had a great idea on how to improve nutrition and also transform seniors’ relationships to food. She created a program that improves senior citizens’ access to fresher produce, gives them a chance to exercise, fosters a sense of community, and just improve overall physical health. Like many innovaters, Melissa had no idea that it would also bring back many beautiful memories.
