Simple Foods Market is open for business! Please give them a warm welcome and support them when you are in the Del Norte area! Their hours are Monday-Saturday, 10-6pm.
Del Norte CSA-ers: pickup will be available there starting Friday. Please try your best to pickup the Tuesday or Friday of your expected delivery. With their hours and my drive home, pickup most likely won't be available Monday/Thursday, but home deliveries will still occur Monday/Thursday.
Check out the interview our AmeriCorps VISTA, Ally Jean, did with owners David and Laura Kephart on the Local Foods Local Places radio show a few weeks back highlighting the market, its history, and sourcing Valley natural local foods and affiliations: https://www.slvlocalfoods.org/radioshow.html

Grain School this Saturday!
A message from Dan Hobbs, Director, RMFU Cooperative Development Center:
On Saturday February 6, 2021 the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union (RMFU) with its partners, the University of Colorado Colorado Springs and the Colorado Grain Chain, will host a free public forum dedicated to farming heritage and ancient grains.
Since its founding in 1907, RMFU has been devoted to building bridges and forming cooperative enterprises, but never in our history have we seen the deep collaboration and creativity that is emerging in Colorado's new grain economy.
Join us for a dynamic journey from the centers of grain origin, to the secrets of soil and water, navigating climate change, improving our businesses, expanding our spirit of cooperation, healing our communities, and celebrating and learning from practitioners and people on the ground.
