Dear Abundant Ones, 
Jenny is in the great Northwest having a blast, so Tami is doing a down and dirty newsletter. 

Big Thanks to everyone that helped on Harvest Abundance...a lovely evening with a lot of laughs and some good money raised for Chatham Mills Farmers Market and Abundance...we are deeply grateful.
Also,  we're looking for local businesses to be sponsors of our 7th Annual Amazing Pepper Festival! The deadline to get sponsors on our organic, limited edition t-shirts and hand screen-printed posters distributed throughout the Triangle is August 1st, so click here if you're curious.
love and gratitude,


Tami, Jenny, Beth & Charlotte

The Collective Biodiesel Conference is geared toward active and open collaboration among participants, including home brewers, grease collectors, multi-million gallon producers, and everyone in between. 

This conference is designed to provide sufficient detail for participants to put what they learn, both technical and logistical, directly into action. In addition to open forums and lectures, the conference also features case studies from active Biodiesel co-ops and companies.
