Dear Sweet Pepper People,

Pepper Festival is 3 days away and we are ready for you!

Early tickets still available and you can always pay $5 more at the door!  We'll have beautiful weather, happy volunteers and inspired Chefs and Brewers + awesome music and entertainment!  You'll learn something too from the educational/non-profit booths!

We also have 150 children coming from Warren County this week to tour the ECO-Industrial Plant where they will learn about sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, climate change adaptation and the exciting thing is that we figured out how to feed them something that is
Thank you Pittsboro Roadhouse for accommodating our request!!

Workshops are going strong thanks to Laurel and Beth.  Jenny was just on NBC-17 with our partner Piedmont Biofuels Katy Horton....we are kicking it. 

Hope to celebrate with you all this coming Sunday, October 6th from 3-7pm @ Boulder Park, Briar Chapel, Chapel Hill.
