Cultivating Community North Valley Ends June 30, 2017
Our Specialty Crop Block Grant funding ends June 30, 2017. We will no longer function as Cultivating Community North Valley with outside funding. Our work continues however, through our partners and stakeholders who we've built relationships over the last several years. GRUB Ed Program and the Organic Vegetable Project both have websites, products and services to offer. The fate of the Edible Pedal Bike Kitchen is still rolling around. Chances are it will be continue to help promote the use of locally grown produce via cooking demos at farmers markets and community events. If you have ideas, funding sources, and storage space, please contact Karen.
