Serenbe is a planned community in Palmetto, Georgia, south of Atlanta.  There I met Paige Witherington who has been farming since 2002. She currently is the Farm Manager at Serenbe, a three-phase development committed to sustainable agriculture and development. The farm she manages supplies food for CSA members in the Atlanta metro area as well as to restaurants within the development including The Hil and soon the Blue Eyed Daisy Cafe. The plot of land set aside for the farm was originally used for cotton farming.  Now people can stay at the local bed and breakfast and experience a mix of old and new South -- tied to the land but focused on the future of food.
