You enjoy Saturday morning walks through the local farmers market and getting your CSA share. You’re a member of the local food co-op because you want to make sure your meat has no antibiotics in it. Yet every day, Iowa loses 25 acres of land to development. That land might be growing the vegetables from your favorite farmer, the meat at your co-op or the honey from a local beekeeper. That land is providing the flavorful meals you enjoy at your favorite local restaurant, but it is at risk the next time the lease expires or the owner needs to sell.
Please consider organizing a gathering near you. We’ll bring information, answers and great conversation. Volunteer today to begin building connections between SILT and our local and regional food hubs, co-ops, farmers markets and Iowans across the state.
