Seacoast Harvest 2012 underway!

Seacoast HarvestThe local food movement is growing by leaps and bounds. In fact, a recent study by the USDA’s Economic Research Service (ERS) reported that marketing of local foods by both direct-to-consumer and wholesale buyers grossed $4.8 billion in 2008. And in 2011 alone, they’ve counted over 7,100 operating farmers markets in the country, and over 170 food hubs.

Seacoast Harvest, a local food guide, connects people with sources of locally grown food.  It provides our community with information on area farms, farmers’ markets, Community Supported Agriculture programs, farm stands, food pantries stocked with fresh food, and new this year, farmers’ markets that participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

We need your help to publish this year’s Seacoast Harvest!

Please sponsor this important community resource. By supporting this project, you will assist us in printing 8,000 copies of Seacoast Harvest as well as updating and maintaining, our online database.

For more information on how you can help, please contact Heather Hughes at  Or,  donate online via PayPal or a credit card. Thank you!

P.S. Plus, donors of $25 and above will be mailed their complimentary copy of Seacoast Harvest!
