Commonwealth in a small Community
July 10, 2018

Commonwealth is something that sets each community apart from the next. There are many different aspects that make up a community, but Canyon Texas in particular has just about everything. Rich in history, full of wildlife, and booming farmers and ranchers the small community of Canyon, is one that will continue to thrive forever more. In the heart of West Texas you can find cattle, corn, cotton and so much more agriculture that I ever thought. There are honey farms, vertical farms with growing technology and ways to produce the best possible product for their community. Not to mention the talented artisans that want to show off their talent at the local Farmer’s Market.

I am so happy to be in the presence of such a thriving and close community this summer.  I could not have asked for a better setting for my internship. Through Local Llano Foodshed opportunity to get to know some local producers who may seem small but trust me they are mighty.

In Canyon, I have taken note that there are also many vastly different scenic views to see. First, you can see a sprinkler that will water the wheat field and feed many people. Then, Palo Duro Canyon a state park that is dedicated to keeping the natural and rural part of Texas alive.

I think diversity is important especially in a small community, because if Canyon was filled with all the same agriculture and all the same history as the rest of the world it wouldn’t be so special. I encourage you to look at the commonweatlth in your community and share it with the world!
