September is NOFA-NY Locavore Month!
In addition to it being National Hunger Action Month, NOFA-NY is celebrating local food, farmers and farm-to-table cookery during September. This is a chance to talk up your love of local food and your support of sustainable farming to your friends and family. It's a great time to share in experiences cooking together, dining at farm-to-table restaurants, taking action to shape policy in support of organic farms, and visiting the farms themselves! From asparagus and apples to wine and wheat, we are fortunate to live in an abundant agricultural state. NOFA-NY's online directory can help you find the most delicious, fresh, healthy food available in your region.
Check out a current listing of Locavore Challenge-inspired events around the state.
NOFA-NY will be offering resources through their website, sharing experiences on a blog and Facebook, and keeping you informed of Locavore events in New York.
At GardenShare, we are working to make the connections between local food, sustainable agriculture, and the problem of hunger in our midst, so what a great way to start bringing these issues together!
