Support the Local Food Economy through the Local Growers Guild
by Katie Zukof
From now through December 31st, 2008, the Local Growers Guild hopes to expand our community membership from 30 to 400 members. In order to do this, we need your support!
By joining the Local Growers Guild, you help to create a local food system that provides quality food to you and your family. You will gain the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping preserve the viability of family farms, improving the quality of life for growers and promoting practices that preserve and protect the health of ourselves, our environment and our community.
Consumers are a vital part of this mission. The Local Growers Guild strives to educate, connect and support local growers, consumers and businesses in Southern Indiana. We do this by publishing the Local Growers Guide annually, hosting the Winter Farmers’ Market, sponsoring Dine Local Night at area restaurants, and hosting
educational workshops at the Winter Guild Gathering.
