Fall Bounty and Community Fund Update


Good Morning CLG Community-

Is the Food Movement for real?
Here is a link to a Michael Pollan article in the NYT that seeks to explore that question

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.
