Exciting "Local Food" Meeting in April!

Our April 15 meeting is not to be missed! With the topic of "Local Food: Farms & Markets," we will have a fabulous panel of farmers, restauranteurs and buying club representatives in addition to lots of info from other farms and HMN-created lists of farmers markets, Community Supported Agriculture shares, and local sources of natural, pasture-raised meat and milk.

Our speakers will also address issues of policy that affect local farmers and explain the costs, joys, and challenges of sustainable farming.

If you've been looking for ways to make your food dollars support local businesses, get this event on your calendar!

Doors open at 6:30, so come early to peruse the info and enjoy some refreshments. The presentation will start promptly at 7:00 and will feature representatives from
  • Blenheim Organic Farm
  • Food Matters Restaurant
  • The Local Flavor Farm Buyer's Club
  • Smith Meadows Farms
There will also be some great donations from local food-related businesses. If you want to donate refreshments or gift certificates for this event -- or if you'd like to send brochures/materials to go on our info table, please contact holisticmomsarlalex (at) gmail (dot) com.

The meeting will be held at our regular location, 716 S. Glebe Rd. Arlington, VA 22204. (Thank you to AUMC for donating space.) Children are welcome to attend

Any recommendations for interested parties who don't drive (and would be bringing a toddler)?
