Issue No. 82
Early Bird Pepper Festival Tickets available until midnight 
tonight @ $25 each. 
Dear PepperHeads, 

We have so much activity happening this time of year, the smells of tobago peppers simmering in olive oil from our kitchen, volunteers have already been coming in to help and we are getting ready to put on the MOST SPECTACULAR Pepper Festival you've ever seen.  It's crazy and amazing and tickets are cheapest now at just $25 until midnight, tonight!  Tickets include endless array of food
from some of the best Chefs around and entertainment, interactive exhibitions and kids' activities.

**We want to alert you to a couple of contests....there is the BEST DISH contest that Piedmont Biofuels is is involved.
There is the best pepper beer and best overall beer contest.   We'll be picking 5 random beer lovers from the early attendees to be Beer Judges.  They will "have" to taste all the beers and then come to consensus as a group and we'll award during the event.  And of course whomever sells the most tickets becomes the Pepper KING & QUEEN.  A HUGE accomplishment.

Seriously, why do we do this?  It's about Climate Change Adaptation, seed saving & plant breeds, it's about the health of our planet, our people and it's about having a lot of come out and learn and eat and drink and enjoy each other...because this is what it's all about.
