SCC, Feb 16, SS Community Action Team to Discuss Urban Farm Tour

Sandhills Community College, Clement Dining Room, Dempsey Student Center
Tuesday, February 16th, 6:30-8:00
Please join us for our first 2010 CAT meeting! This month we'll learn about urban farming and prepare for the upcoming Urban Farm Tour, April 10. Attendees will form break-out groups to discuss potential tour sites, fundraising ideas, and volunteer opportunities.
Urban agriculture is the method of cultivating food in or around a town or city. Eating locally-grown food is less energy intensive--supermarket produce can travel over 1,000 miles!--and often safer, not to mention tastier!  Get inspired by the story of an urban farm in California:  The Dervaes Family Garden
We will include updates on community events and projects, including a Cultural Resources Inventory of the area.  Invite your friends and help spread the word!  Together we are making a difference!

Save these dates!
March 11th – Sustainable Film Series screening of “Addicted to Plastic”
