Thank you to those who attended the Environmental Documentary Screening of The Need to GROW on November 11th!
We had a great panel discussion with four amazing ladies working for a more local and sustainable food system. As always, our goal is to educate and follow that education up with action. Here are the action items we encourage you to take. Please make a commitment to do something and share it with us; Post on Sustainable Works Facebook Wall, connect at #sustainablesm or send us an email
