Coming to a Library near you…Eating local in KC

The following is from Ralph Tomlinson, Adult Services Librarian for Olathe Public Library

As part of the activities leading up to the Greater Kansas City Urban Farm Tour 2009, local libraries in Independence, MO, and Olathe, KS, are featuring the following program:

“How to Eat Local in KC” – hosted by Season Burnett (Director of the Kansas City CSA Coalition) and Emily Akins (member of the Kansas City Food Circle Coordinating Committee)

How can you reach out to your community while at the same time finding local, sustainable methods for buying, making, and growing your own food? Come learn and share information about the exploding number of Kansas City’s local and organic farmers’ markets, Community Supported Agriculture and CSAs, community and school gardening, preserving, and other local-food efforts promoted by some fantastic organizations actively involved in our local “foodshed.” As you grow more inspired, you can find out how to help your friends and neighbors “go local”!
