Join us for the 2015 Field to Family Festival this September!
The 2015 Field to Family’s Local Foods Festival works to bring the community together to celebrate and support local farmers, healthy foods programming, and culinary excellence.
This year’s festival features educational events on school gardens, soil 101, components of a healthy food system and Know Your Farmer. This year’s festival will also strive to feature all current initiatives related to local foods in our community.
Field to Family once again thanks New Pioneer Food Co-op (http://www.newpi.coop) for their sponsorship of the Festival at the Blue Ribbon Level. Their support is integral to our Farm to School Chapter, Local Food Finder and our Festival. We share an appreciation for local foods and healthy communities. Thank you New Pioneer Food Co-op!
