Join us for the one year Land and Table anniversary November 6th![/caption] Coming this November will mark our one year anniversary of organizing Land and Table gatherings of the regional local food movement! This is an exciting milestone because I think it speaks clearly of the rising interest within the community to revive our connections with the land, the sources of our food, and one another. Many of us are longing to reclaim a life full of meaningful connections and a more intentional way of life that looks to past generations as a source of wisdom. With this wisdom, mixed with new understandings, we are helping shape the future of agriculture, culture and community within our region. It is no small task that we have gathered monthly for a year. It is a sign to the broader community of the importance of reclaiming the agricultural, cultural and economic health of our community. We have accomplished much this year but if we only have accomplished weaving a network of relationships among those of us involved and interested in the local food movement – that would be enough. For from this relational infrastructure will arise the will and continued action to create a viable and beyond-sustainable food economy in this corner of Virginia. As we celebrate our one year anniversary we will be reviewing this year’s accomplishments, making plans for our December Christmas party and beginning the process of mapping out our vision for 2013. We are also delighted to have Elli Sparks who has been a Weston A. Price cooking instructor for years in Richmond. Her expertise in healthy, cooking of local real foods will be an asset to our region for years to come. For our November gathering Elli will be sharing a Weston A. Price primer on cooking with traditional real foods and how this shift in our eating can positively impact the health of our families. I read an article recently that Elli wrote in one of the VICFA newsletters titled ‘You Teach! You Teach! You Teach!‘ in which she said:

“We are building community, because no one person is the food revolution.”
We totally agree! This statement is why we do what we do. This is why we are passionate about Land and Table. And we hope you will continue to help us build a community that looks towards transforming our regional foodshed. __________________________________________________
