We had a beautiful day for Bike to Barns this past Sunday. Our riders had big smiles when they returned and had a lot of praise our farmers and their work with the land. A big thanks goes out to all of our growers who took time out of a weather-friendly work day to take our participants on tours of their farms and talk about their growing practices. We accomplished our goal of introducing our bike riders to Guild members with an event that both celebrates and supports efforts to grow a sustainable local food system. The Local Growers’ Guild promotes practices that preserve and protect the earth through our workshops, resources, and one on one meetings with growers wishing to diversify their operations. Proceeds from Bike to Barns will help us reach out to more growers and young farmers to continue these activities. To learn more about the LGG, browse our website, or contact us to learn more about volunteer opportunities.
As a first time event, we appreciate the support from local businesses and organizations and value their commitment to local food initiatives. Please thank them for their sponsorship of Bike to Barns!
