We send out cool articles and farmer highlights using a different email program. You can see the archives of those emails here and through our facebook page! We use this “weblog” every Friday evening to let you know the market page is accepting orders (look for the little add to cart buttons next to products). Northeast Georgia Locally Grown was officially OPENED on Monday, April 26th, 2010 and we are so thankful that you are helping support fresh local foods each week.
Locally Grown - Special Update - Christmas Party BEER TASTING / POTLUCK
Hey Local Food Lovers,
I wanted to send you a very special 2nd message this week that I failed to mention this last time.
As many of you know the Soque River Watershed Association in Clarkesville is the non-profit sponsor for the Locally Grown market. It’s one of our programs to support sustainable land-based businesses.
Each year for the past 3 years we’ve had an end of year Christmas Party at my house to say thanks to everyone who has in any way been involved in our organization or programs. If you’ve been eating Local Food, or even just reading our message here occasionally then you are one of those people.
ALL OF YOU ARE INVITED to the SRWA Christmas Party and BEER TASTING POTLUCK this Friday December 14th. Sounds fun doesn’t it. To participate just bring a craft beer (defined as a beer made by a brewer that is small, independent, and makes yummy beer) at least one large 24 oz bottle, or two 12oz bottles and a potluck dish (veggies, meats, snacks or sweets). We’ll do blind taste tests of beers to see which one’s you like and help you navigate the wonderful world of craft beer. Anyone who gets this post is invited (and feel free to invite good beer-loving friends). Of course we highly encourage you to consider joining the SRWA (online at https://www.donationpay.org/soqueriver/ or at the party). Encouraged but not required. It’s a great way to support your local river loving group, and have some good beers, food, and laughs.
Party is at Justin and Ching-Yu (and Cheetos and Whiskey’s) house at 237 Wilson Street, Clarkeville, GA. That’s right across from Grace Calvary Church. In fact you’ll want to park in their parking lot. Starts at 6pm.
ps- If you’re wondering how to get your hands on good craft beer, here’s a few suggestions. Betty’s in Helen, Hillside Beverage in Gainseville, Beverage Superstore in Suwanee, 5 points bottle shop in Athens. Very limited selections are of course at Ingles but try and surprise us.
Hope many of you can make it. This will be the first opportunity we’ve had to hang out with lots of you outside of the market so please come on…..you may get to meet one or many of your FARMERS! And have a beer with them!
Thanks and Happy Holidays,
Justin in Habersham
