Updates and Plans

I've received a great deal of feedback to last week's post on creating institutional community support for local agriculture in West Virginia. Some here on the blog, some through Facebook, and several private conversations. I think there's a great deal of excitement about this conversation and I'm energized to keep it going. Thanks for all your input and feedback.

More on local foods soon/now...

Good news from Putnam County about a potential new farmers' market. While I'm very excited to read stories like this, I hope the local producers have enough product and people to cover. Several of the producers at The Capitol Market are from Putnam County, so I hope there's enough for both markets to thrive.
The Putnam County Exension Service is having a meeting Thursday to discuss the project. The meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. on the second floor of the former Winfield Courthouse.

For more information, you can call (304) 586-0217.

Also, I'm gettin' my rear back in the kitchen tonight. Promised the co-workers at Tricky Fish that I'd cook for them sometime, and I better get on that horse. So they get fed tonight. And the Sam's crew gets fed tonight. Not sure what the marinate/stuffing will be yet. We'll see what's at the market. Likely some roast spuds to accompany the porcine goodness of mr. loin. Basil and golden raisins anyone?

Hi Dan- You should check out Community involved in sustaining agriculture. They do some really great things here in MA to support local agriculture like putting out a local food guys and special signs and stickers for local foods in the grocery stores.

@LeAnna - They were in one of my early drafts of the WV Day post, and seem really fantastic.
