Nelson Renews Call To Eat Healthy By Buying Local Produce
The singer co-founded the charity Farm Aid with John Mellencamp and Neil Young and the trio united on Saturday (02Oct10) to celebrate its 25th anniversary by co-headlining a fundraiser for the organisation.
And Nelson used his time on stage to encourage fans to invest in more organic, local farming.
He told the audience, "We should be interested in knowing where our food comes from. If it comes from soil that is organic, that is grown by our family farmers, we know that it's more healthy than the food grown by big corporations that saturate the soil with chemicals and pesticides and fertilisers.
"Thank you for those farmers who are doing their part, doing organic farming, and who need our support. That's why we're here, 25 years in a row."
