Lowcountry Local First will kick off its third annual Eat Local Month on April 1. Eat Local Month, presented by Limehouse Produce, provides hands-on educational opportunities and events for the community to engage in eating what is in season while connecting with local farmers, restaurants, businesses and organizations.
"Eat Local Month is a celebration of the Lowcountry's farm-to-table movement and is focused on empowering the community to take an active role in our local food economy,” said Lowcountry Local First’s Sustainable Agriculture Program Director Nikki Seibert. “It’s about making connections to the farmers and fishermen harvesting our food, integrating buying local into our daily lives and experiencing local culinary treasures."
Check out Local First’s website for a calendar of special events throughout the month. All funds raised during Eat Local Month support Lowcountry Local First’s work in sustainable agriculture.
