If you are a grower in Addison County, be sure to attend one of these meetings being hosted by our friends at ACORN!
ACORN is hosting four regional meetings in January and February for local food growers. ACORN will share information about emerging market opportunities and gauge interest in scaling up production. The two-hour meeting will provide an opportunity for growers to network as well as talk about the challenges and opportunities they face in their business, how ACORN might best support their work, and potential opportunities for collaboration with other growers.
The grower meeting schedule is as follows:
Wednesday, Jan. 13 – KB Café, Kennedy Brothers Building, 11 Main Street, Vergennes, 9am-11am
Wednesday, Jan. 20 – Tandem Market, 26 Main Street, Bristol, 9am-11am
Thursday, Jan. 28 – Platt Memorial Library, 279 Main Street, Shoreham, 9am-11am
Thursday, Feb. 4 – UVM Extension, 23 Pond Lane, Suite 300, Middlebury, 9am-11am
All Addison County growers are invited and encouraged to attend the meeting that works best based on their location and schedule. ACORN will provide time for socializing, as well as light refreshments, thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op.
