The local foods movement is alive and well in Champaign County! Here are some updates on other projects while we finalize our virtual market:
Local Producers Map:
Our local producers map is ready for publication and you will soon be able to find it on gochampaign.com. Copies will be distributed around the community, in the local telephone book, and other “hangouts”. The guide lists the location and contact information for nearly 50 local producers within our county. The map was a project of the Local Food Council and printed with the help of some local sponsors including the Monument Square District, Champaign Bank, the Community Improvement Corporation, the Chamber of Commerce, the Farm Bureau and others. It is a great start to finding a local source for Champaign County’s finest!
Happy Flower Power Sunday!
Well, it looks like we are about to journey out of this frozen craziness, and get some sunshine, and warmer temperatures!!
And, what better way to welcome this breath of fresh air than with flowers??
Our girls from Flourish have made it possible to order those BEAUTIFUL Proteas from the Hawaii Flower Farm, while Rebekah is there, experiencing and researching.
I can tell you that these flowers are exquisite, vibrant in color, and bring complete amazement, day to day, as they each open up, in their own way.
They are very limited in quantity, so don’t miss out!!!
The power of flowers…
