There are a couple events coming up in February that are worth taking note of.
On Friday, February 20, the NoCo Food Cluster will be partnering with USDA/NIFA Regional Rural Development Centers and CSU Extension Services to bring you a policy and grants workshop. These partners will host a Northern Colorado local, state and federal food policy and program update: including a farmer’s market, local food promotion and a USDA grant writing workshop from 9:30 to 2:30 pm at the Greeley Recreation Center, Room 101C. This event is great if you’re a Farmerr, rancher, producer, ag organization member or a member of the broader public that is interested in learning about applying for a variety of food system grants. Food Cluster partners will be invited to engage in a discussion about a potential regional Community Food Projects proposal. RSVP by February 16!
Then, on Saturday, February 21, there will be a CSA Fair at the Opera Galleria in Old Town Fort Collins. If you’ve thought about getting a CSA share before, this is a great opportunity to meet a variety of farmers and ranch that provide some amazing food to the local community. Learn about community supported agriculture and it’s benefits and how you can find a CSA membership that will work with your families needs. Stay tuned for fair hours!
