Local Food RULES

Any of you who are interested in this issue should try to attend this. The ordinance is an excellent example of the kind of work we need to be doing to bring about systemic change. And we all eat; find out why we should be eating local food as much as possible.


You’re Invited to Join Local Food RULES

Local Food RULES (LFR) is a new membership organization formed around the work done in passing the Local Food and Community Self-Governance Ordinance in five* Maine towns last year. The work of the group will be to protect the rights asserted in the ordinance and support other communities working on local food issues. The first gathering of LFR will be on Saturday, March 31, 1-3 pm at Peninsula Metamorphic Arts and Learning on the Mines Rd. It will include a finger-food potluck; everyone should bring a favorite appetizer to share. Dan Brown will up-date the group on the lawsuit against him. Heather Retberg will introduce the mission and goals of the organization. Ralph Chapman will speak about the legislative climate.There will be time for questions and discussion of steps toward the future. We will appreciate donations to help pay for the meeting space. Everyone interested in local foods is welcome. *A sixth town just passed it, and a seventh is voting on Saturday. _______________________________________________ HCCN mailing list HCCN@mainetalk.org https://mainetalk.org/mailman/listinfo/hccn_mainetalk.org
