WV Food & Farm Coalition News

Welcome to our updated newsletter! As before, you'll find it stuffed like a Thanksgiving turkey full of upcoming events, opportunities, and local-food news from both here in the mountain state and beyond. 

On your left, you'll see links to some of the new content on our website, and below, you'll find little blurbs from some of the more interesting things we've been working on since the last newsletter, followed by upcoming events, opportunities, and news. 

As always, if there's something you'd like to see here, email us at info@wvfoodandfarm.org! As always, this is YOUR space, YOUR newsletter and YOUR Coalition.
