UPDATE: Tendercrop’s Farm to Table Event on Sept. 10 HAS BEEN POSTPONED. NEW DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED.
This event raises money for the American Farmland Trust. This well-known (and, we think, very worthy) national group benefits local farmers. It is committed to protecting the nation’s farm and ranch land, keeping it healthy and improving the economic viability of agriculture.
Did you know:
* America’s farms and ranches provide an unparalleled abundance of fresh, healthy and local food, but they are rapidly disappearing.
* 91% of America’s fruit and 78% percent of our vegetables are grown near metro regions, where they are in the path of development.
* America has been losing more than an acre of farmland every minute.
That’s why supporting local food and farms is more important than ever! Get your tickets for the event at Carry Out Cafe or Tendercrop Farm.
