Aside from being just what every community needs, this venture to educate others on health, sustainability and family provides a much needed foundation for each individual to learn and explore alternative ways of providing for themselves. The current economic state in our country may not be able to provide us with all that we need for long. This event will stress the importance of diligence and knowledge amongst food and family. These two things are almost synonymous!

See you there! Oh…and come hungry!
