A portion of profits from the sale of James Taylor's strings go to Tuberville: In Tuberville, WE GROW FOOD AND WE DONATE IT. That might be the simplest of descriptions. Tuberville is also an experiment to help us understand more about communities, online and physical ones. Whether it is working with communities to grow food locally, planting potatoes with first graders and harvesting them as second graders or working with local farmers to help move their wholesome but visually imperfect produce. Tuberville’s “Grow Share Learn” program works with individual communities to bring together grocers, farmers and food shelves to address hunger and its effects locally. This importance is not just in the food itself, but in the points of contact we make with others when we work for a common goal. See more at www.tuberville.org.
