It was a blustery day on April 23 for the return of our in-person CSA Fair at the Creamery building. Nearly 30 local farmers showed up to visit with community members about CSAs and to share the importance of working together to build a strong local food economy. There were raffles, samples, snacks, a lot of laughter, and only a little bit of rain.
Board of Directors Connect with Community and Farmers
Members of the board of directors chatted with attendees over Seward-made cookies and coffee. They shared information about our co-op’s 50-year history, discussed their hopes for the next 50 years, and encouraged folks to run for the board this fall. Directors Kate Seybold and Warren King facilitated conversations with Janssen Hang, executive director of Hmong American Farmers Association, Naima Dhore, owner of Naima’s Farm and executive director of Somali American Farmers Association, and Jack Hedin, founder of Featherstone Farm.
