Community Meeting a Success!

Thanks to everyone who attended our community information meeting last evening! We appreciate the enthusiasm and ideas you brought to share with us.

Thanks to all the equipment contributions we've received from Buehler's and to all the colorful and delicious produce shared by steering committee members Monica Bongue and Bill Boyer (with additional produce from Weaver Truck Patch), the displays we set up in the front windows can give you an idea of how we hope the market will look once we're up and running.

We were very pleased with the turnout -- well over 80 interested people -- as well as with the number of volunteers who signed up to help with construction, painting, marketing, and staffing the pickup days. We'll get back to you very soon to let you know about work days at the market so that you can get your volunteer hours counted.

Among the handouts we had available for attendees were the September newsletter (PDF) and a list of potential events for the market. As always, if you have ideas, please drop us an email to share them!:

--To share news, articles, or ideas, email news AT localrootswooster DOT com

In the meantime, stop by your local farmers' market and find out if your favorite producers will be selling at Local Roots this winter. We're always happy to bring new producers on board!
