You’ll be Missed, Marty

It has been hard to find the time to write recently, although a new season, plenty of rainfall and the impending arrival of the Asian Citrus Psyllid has given me plenty of potential material. But there was an event this week that can’t pass without note.

You see, we lost Marty this week.

For those who didn’t have the pleasure of knowing her, Marty Fujita was one of a kind. She was the energy behind the successful Food for Thought program in Ojai,  one of the pioneers of the new farm-to-school movement. She was a passionate voice for the environment at the Ventura County Ag Futures Alliance. She had the unique ability to be both a tornado of concern and a ray of sunshine at the same time.

Marty’s voice may have been silenced, but it will echo in the minds and hearts of those who had the privilege of working alongside her.
