The Lewis County Permaculture Society presents:
Lewis County Food Hub Forum
Details: We have an exciting opportunity to partner with Olympia in a cooperative usage of online website/software for establishing a Food Hub.
This would allow Lewis County residents two opportunities...
1. Access to locally sourced food from farmers that you can get to know.
2. The ability to sell your products to a larger local market.
This is a BIG step for Lewis County and an important one. We strongly encourage ANYONE seeking to produce/sell products and anyone eager to help strengthen our local community and support local farmers/producers to come and be a part of this informative and groundbreaking meeting.
southsoundfresh.localfoodmarketplace.com would be where we would list our product, (whether) that's a dozen eggs or 500 lbs of potatoes... if you only have something to sell once a year or are a regular producer... this will give you a place to market, anytime of year.
This will be a Pilot Group program to grow interest in building a larger network of Food Hubs. We have to start somewhere.
There will be another meeting October 9th with Treacy Kreger from Olympia and Lizzie Barnts about establishing this pilot!!!
Mark your calendars - Friday October 6th = No School - State Inservice
