2014 Expos a Huge Success!

 

Thank you so much to our farmers, sponsors, eater members and volunteers for making the 16th Annual Eat Local & Organic Expos such a huge success.  Attendance records were broken, and everything went really smoothly.

Our first year at Johnson County Community College saw more than 1700 visitors looking for connections with the farmers who grow our food, and finding lots of seedlings for their gardens.

Even though we were competing with absolutely gorgeous weather and several spring activities throughout the area, more than 900 people attended the Penn Valley Community College Expo.

We can’t wait for next year!
