Longview farm part of larger effort toward food equality

Watershed Garden Works owners Scott and Dixie Edwards prepare bags of basil to send members of their Community Supported Agriculture program in Longview, Wash.

Despite challenges, like fending off starlings, deer and nutria, owners Scott and Dixie Edwards harvest enough produce from their 7.5 acres to fill the farm share bags that go out to customers each week.
