Events, programs, workshops and resources that help support a local food economy.

Together with our dedicated community members and partners, we organize a variety of programming focused on educating different facets of our community about local food and sustainable agriculture.  Food touches us all, everyone must eat, so together we work  to make connections between people and their food by taking action and teach those around us about sustainable, local food systems in ways that directly impact their behaviors.

Events & Programs
