You’re invited to a Community Potluck to come together with others in York County to organize around local food. During the Community Potluck we hope that you will bring food and share a healthy meal, make connections with people who have an interest in local food, find and share opportunities to get involved in food projects in York County, create and support new community based food projects

Topics for discussion include: Homesteading, Permaculture, Sustainable Farming, Restaurants – Going Out and Going Local, Food Cooperatives, Farmers Markets, Community Gardens, School Garden Coordination, Food Councils, Food Security/ Food Access, existing groups and food projects

Bring the whole family! There will be a safe space for kids. Youth activities will coordinated by teen-aged volunteers. This is the first of regular networking events sponsored by Cooperative Fermentation, a community-based project working to create cooperatives in the food system.
