Do you know your farmer? Join us at our 17th annual Eat Local & Organic Expos for a chance to meet and buy directly from some of the best local, organic, and free-range farmers in the area. Snatch up early flower and garden seedlings, fresh greens, herbs, free-range meat and eggs and get our free Directory of local organic and free range producers. Getting a subscription to a farm (a CSA) gets you top pick of the best food in town.

Some farmers can accept credit cards and checks, but cash is preferred. There are several ATM’s near JCCC, and also just east of MCC Penn Valley on Main Street.

Workshop for kids of all ages: "Little Sprouts - The Joy and Wonder of Learning How Things Grow" 

10:00-10:45 am (at both Expos) - Dayna McDaniel of SeedSavers-KC will welcome kids of all ages to this introduction to seeds, pollination, fruit production and seed harvest.  Kids will plant a pot of seeds to grow at home. This hands-on nature activity will give kids and parents alike the basic lessons in the magic of gardening and will give them the tools they need to get growing!

Admission and parking are free. Families are welcome!
