News Community League to present program on local food

On Thursday, Aug. 11, Alan Durden of the N.C. Cooperative Extension Service will talk about the local food movement in Macon County at a program sponsored by the League of Women Voters.

He will describe local food sources and projects — tailgate markets, stands, farmers’ markets, and community gardens. He will discuss the marketing concerns of local farmers, how is what farmers grow and market changing, and in what direction is agriculture moving.

He will talk about the value of local foods to the consumer and the local economy. The program will be held at Tartan Hall in Franklin.

Lunch is available at noon by reservation. Call (828)371-0527 or email lwvmacon@ wild-dog-mountain.info. The program will begin at 12:15. The public is invited.
