Part of the GBCFC staff spent most of the last three days attending the Small Farm Conference in Fallon, NV. It was a fantastic educational and networking opportunity. There is a lot of exciting and admirable work being done by farmers, NRCS, NDOA, USDA, Nevada Cooperative extension, Nevada grown, and many more to provide our area with the food that nourishes us!
We had a visitor, Robin Sedeyl, from La Montanita Food Cooperative in New Mexico at the conference. La Montanita has been building an amazing local food infrastructure in their region for the past 30 years! They are the ones who taught us about food sheds three years ago at a co-op conference in Portland. Robin provided us with much needed guidance and experience as we embark on building a local food distribution hub and growing the GBCFC Store. Thank You to everyone involved in this years conference
