Did you know that San Diego County has more small farms (less than 10 acres) than any other county in the nation?!
The purpose of our Meetup group is to learn more about our local food source. Together we will learn what it means for food to be organic vs. pesticide free, hormone free, non-GMO, free-range, sustainability, etc, etc. My goal is to organize events once a month that are educational in nature rather than just a "show up and buy/pick on your own". Although we mainly focus on farms, we do occasionally visit local food purveyors to give a more holistic view of our local food source.
We are not fans of flakes and no-shows. If you are that person, please do not join this group. We will kick people out of the group when they have 2 no-shows for limited-space events.
Please complete your introduction and upload a photo of yourself. I highly recommend having your face photo since that will help us recognize you during our events.
Let's have fun, learn from the experts, and support our local farmers!
Your Organizer, Melin
