Unfortunately the traditional weekends, after 6 weekdays and legal holidays are the best for me.

Introduction

Hi, I'm a Colorado Native and almost-native of Colorado Springs...yet know painfully little about the local food industry -- and will enjoy learning!

What Colene is saying about this Meetup Group

I owe Bonnie a great debt of gratitude. That Ohio transplant has taught me more about the "Local" community than I've learned in the last 35 years I've lived here! She has a great sense of community and works hard at engaging the people of CSprings and the surrounding areas and connecting them with with LOCAL resources. Selfishly, I find the interactions at these businesses SO much more rewarding, because employees at locally-owned stores are not mindless minimum-wage numbers who lack the knowledge or desire to truly engage a customer about their products. It's SO refreshing to see genuine, knowledgeable folks talk about a way of life that reflects their passion, ethics and, in many cases, compassion. Out of the 20+ Meet-up groups I have belonged to and actively participated in, Local Foods has easily been the most educational, rewarding and inspiring...one person truly CAN make a difference!
