Want to connect with other local food lovers? Check out ASAP’s new community site, which makes its full launch this fall(http://www.FromHere.org). Its goal? To serve as a central online space for the local food community to join in conversation. Visitors can share their favorite local food recipes, stories about their farm adventures, connect with ASAP and one another via social media, and more.
The site is also a place for contests and exclusive deals, like discounts at Appalachian Grown partner restaurants and farm stands. And, the site is the new home of ASAP’s online events calendar and classifieds. Use the resources to learn about ASAP-sponsored and community local food and farm events; find farmland, farm products or an agricultural internship; or share your farm products and equipment for sale or trade. At the site, visitors can also sign up for a weekly newsletter that will bring the site’s tailgate market updates, contests, photos and events to their inbox.
Stay tuned to http://www.FromHere.org as winter approaches for regular updates about market closings and special holiday markets.
