The Carolina Farm Stewardship Association is coming to Greensboro next Wednesday!
This summer, they are criss-crossing the Carolinas to meet as many farmers and food lovers who share a passion for a local, organic food system and a sustainable community. The tour’s goals include creating a more robust Local Food Finder, CFSA’s new one-stop website for finding local food, farms, food artisans, food trucks and restaurants. Another focus is the 2012 Farm Bill, a piece of federal legislation that is revamped every five years, affecting food in a myriad of ways that includes farms, both big and small, and federal assistance programs. Just last week the US Senate passed its version of the bill, but there is still much work to do to ensure that this massive piece of legislation helps—rather than hinders—local, sustainable agriculture.
CFSA will be collecting local food stories in Greensboro next Wednesday, July 25th that demonstrate just how much farmers and food businesses grow and support the local economy and why consumers should buy local and organic. Come meet these fine folks and show them some good Greensboro hospitality.
