The event is next Saturday, Oct. 25 from 4-7 at Phoenix Charter School. It is the Third Annual Umpqua Valley Food Day Celebration, which is in honor of the National Food Day that is going on all around the country. The goal is to encourage people to eat more healthy, local, and sustainable foods.
From 4-5 there will be a community seed swap, booths with groups such as Big Lick Farm, and a short seminar on gardening from school horticulturist Mary Ellis.
From 5-7 we will be screening the documentary Food Matters.
The event is free to the public. Bring your kids, seed packets and healthy snacks!
