Staying Connected

Greetings all- I hope that this finds you well and hunkering down for the weekend. Winter weather is on it’s way, so stay safe out there.

Did you know that the 11th annual local Food Summit is happening on February 16th? It is an amazing place to connect with information, resources about local food systems and community that supports and makes these food systems happen! I just bought my ticket (they have sliding scales to meet everyone’s needs). Check it out: https://localfoodsummit2019.blogspot.com/

I have also been thinking of other ways to keep you all connected to your vendors and the food and farming community during these cold weather months. Listed below are vendors who are selling their products through the winter and where to find them:
