Fall Bounty and Community Fund Update


Good Morning CLG Community-

The selection still abounds and Bluebird Hill Berry Farm is back online after taking a short trip for rejuvination.

Is the Food Movement for real?
Here is a link to a Michael Pollan article in the NYT that seeks to explore that question
He thinks “California’s Proposition 37, which would require that genetically modified (G.M.) foods carry a label, has the potential to do just that — to change the politics of food not just in California but nationally too.”

Building Community Around Food
This week we raised $45 for the Conway Locally Grown Community Fund, a micro lending program that will fund sustainable and community oriented projects. So far we have raised $1625.40 for our next round of Community Fund investments. We plan to start taking applications for the next round of funding in December.
