Hi Folks - Our next meeting for the NWA Local Food Guide is scheduled for this coming Tuesday, August 30th, 7-9 pm, Fayetteville City Hall, Room 111.
On our agenda for this meeting:
I recently came through Asheville, NC where I met with Charlie Jackson, the Executive Director of ASAP (Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project) - the folks who created the local food map and guide that has been so inspiring to our group. Charlie shared several suggestions to help guide our effort and sent me home with a stack of materials that they have created directly related to and offshoots of their local food guide program. I look forward to sharing what I learned with you.
We also would like to hear from the folks who have been heading up the Contact/Content (Quinn, Brittany, Angie), Website (Chad), Brochure (Teresa, Jonathan) and Funding (Teresa, Brittany) Committees to hear about progress in these areas.
Also as a reminder, the Fayetteville Roots Festival is this weekend and has a local food-local music emphasis...people can come buy food made from local products and listen to some great music....and benefits going on for Feed Fayetteville and also Slow Food. Here's the link:
Thanks, and see you at the meeting on Tuesday!
