Want to talk about local food & health?
Next Monday and Tuesday (11/10 and 11/11), a “listening crew” for a new documentary called Healthy America will be visiting the region. They plan to stop in at Boone Street Market, and I’m wondering if any of you would be interested in being there during their visit so they could hear from you about how having access to local food (thru the farmers market, store) is improving your health?
I don’t yet know the schedule, but if you are 1) interested and 2) willing to hear about it on short notice…will you please let me know? Click here to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
