Steering Committee Meeting rescheduled

All of us Steering Committee members are busy! This doesn't stop us from meeting regularly to discuss the progress of Grassroots, though. We'll be meeting next Tuesday (instead of this Tuesday), in our regular place of Herrick Library's cafe in the basement at 7pm. Last week, we had Anna from Groundswell Community Farm and Chuck Johnson from CJ Veggies join us to talk about carrying their products and lots of other interesting things (like how to get through those rutabegas!). Their local organic farms are in Zeeland and their insight was very helpful; they'll both be offering Community Supported Agriculture shares and selling at the farmer's market this year.
Since our article ran in the Holland Sentinel, we received at least 5 responses from people . We are very excited about this and look forward to being involved with more community members interested in pursuing a healthy, environmentally friendly and local lifestyle.
