O Abundant Ones,

We're moving swiftly into fall and preparing for winter here at Abundance. We're planning big things to inspire cafeteria staff about how to get better lunches in Chatham County Schools in January. And we're rolling out ideas for our 2nd Annual Agricultural Climate Adaptation conference in February for NC farmers and ag researchers. 

We've scheduled our next Pecha Kucha Night for Monday, December 2nd, so start thinking about your NEXT BIG IDEA to share. Send topics to pknpbo@gmail.com!
