Brazos Locavores- February Field Trip Announcement

For all you locals...

We have another exciting trip planned for February. As those of you who frequent our farmers market know, Tanya Miller of Millican Produce is now selling her home-grown, plump, juicy tomatoes year-round! In the midst of all those salad greens, cabbage, green onions, and potatoes, those bright red tomatoes really stand out; demanding they be noticed, taken home, adn enjoyed. How is it possible? Join the Brazos Locavores on our next field trip to find out!

Here's the scoop:

When: Sunday, February 22 (1:00 - 4:00)
Where: Brazos Natural Foods (we'll be meeting in the parking lot and carpooling out to Millican Produce)

Everyone is welcome and don't forget to bring the kids. These field trips are a wonderful opportunity to teach our little ones about where good food originates. Please RSVP by Thursday, February 19. Although the greenhouse we'll be visiting is large, it will only accommodate about 25 people. If more people are interested, we'll schedule a second tour. If you have any questions, just let me know. See you there!
The Brazos Locavores is a group whose mission is to connect with local producers in the Brazos Valley and support a lifestlye of mindful eating. The group gathers for monthly field trips to farms, orchards, and dairies within 100 miles of Bryan-College Station meeting local producers, touring their faciilities, learning more about why eating local is the way to go, and meeting others who are interested in living a local lifestyle.
