The Community Meal Project
JCSWCD staff and soil commissioners have been working hard on putting together a series of events that will kick off Spring 2014 and culminate with a local foods meal in 2015. This project will focus in the Longfellow neighborhood, it will include a neighborhood assessment, educational events and workshops about conservation, local foods, and art. This project will bring community members together to discuss the above themes to bring awareness, and also to educate, inspire and motivate. Recently staff created a video for a video contest entry with the National Association of Conservation Districts. Please watch the video to learn more about the project. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
