Local Food Circle Meeting A long and dreary gray winter is fortunately nearly over, time to start planting. I have just returned from the Southern Sustainable Ag. Working Group conference in Mobile Alabama and then the Missouri Organic Association conference in Springfield. What an inspiration!!!! All over the country, and here in our state, exciting projects are taking place helping people to maintain control of our food supply. In North America over 3000 plants were eaten by Native Americans, now most can only name a few "wild edibles." This will be the first Local Food Circle Gathering of the year. Wednesday February 18th 6:30 p.m. McKittrick Farmers Mercantile. Come find out about an exciting new website that has been set up for our area. The Hermann Area Regional Economic & Sustainability (or HARES) project. It is important for us to help each other in resisting corporate control of our food supply. I'm excited! I have been eating from my garden all winter, leeks, spinach, green onions and sorrel (all still growing outdoors under floating row cover) and my stored sweet potatoes and squash... I hope to see you again in 2015. I am always happy to share any local food information if you can't make it. Thanks for your time! Free and Fun for all. For more information call Joey at 314-698-9152
