Starting in 2009 COG PWW will be organizing promotional markets to display local products from certified organic producers. Restaurants, institutions and consumers will be able to access local, certified organic products, and get to know who the organic producers are in your region.

Check here for details on when and where we will be throughout the 2009 season!

Local and Organic Food Skills

With the ever increasing array of fast food and one-stop processed food items, sourcing, purchasing, cooking with and preserving local, organic produce has become a lost art.

In partnership with local home economists, community kitchens and organizations, COG PWW will begin to bridge the gap from growing to eating local and organic.

A new local and organic food skills guidebook will be developed to share with institutions, community health workers, and the general public. Workshops will be developed and delivered throughout the region to provide hands-on support and build local food skills, while providing local, organic food products for participants.
