Our next meeting will be
Wednesday, March 27th
at Fletcher Free Libary, Fletcher Room, Burlington
At this meeting we'll have a presentation on local CSAs: what's been working well for years, what's new, what options are out there, and how to choose. Luc has been gathering information on Champlain Valley CSAs in the process of developing a CSA Finder tool for the Web site, and has unearthed a lot of appealing options.
Everyone interested in local foods and local economies is welcome.
We'll share information and questions about local foods and discuss plans and ideas for the group. Musicians are invited to bring instruments for the social half-hour. Please do bring any books or resources you'd like to share.
One common definition of "local food" is food produced within a 100 mile radius. For reference, here's a map of what that radius is around Burlington, Vermont: almost all of Vermont, much of New Hampshire, northeastern upstate New York, and a big chunk of southern Quebec. (I was hoping it might encompass a bit of the Maine coast for seafood but alas, no such luck.)
