For the 2014 Eat Local Challenge, The Nola Locavores is teaming up again with Nola Social Ride and Parkway Partners to stage the 2nd Annual New Orleans Eat Local Challenge Urban Farm Bike Tours!
Registration for these events are free and will include water and some fresh local food snacks. A custom event T-shirt will also be available for a donation of $5 for 2013 Eat Local Challenge Members and $10 for everyone else. A small number of shirts will be available at registration, but we ask that everyone please pre-order so that we can know what our budget is for refreshments!
Regarding refreshments: since this is a free event, it is doubtful that we will be able get enough refreshments donated/purchased for everyone (although we will try!). We will have plenty of water, but please bring a snack for yourself, and something to share! This year we will have a sag truck riding along, which will be available to carry any snacks or supplies that you would like to bring.
