Food System Leadership Conference in Vermont

Get intense training on how to improve our local food systems.  Wow, it sounds tremendous.  Is anyone from CenTex going?

Transition towns

An interesting concept – Transition Towns – I wonder if any Bastrop County towns could/would take on a serious endeavor to raise awareness of sustainable living and build local ecological resilience in the near future.  It seems to me that our 3 towns, Bastrop, Elgin, Smithville are moving in this direction.  Who will be first to step up the pace?

Bastrop Farm-to-Restaurant a Huge Success!

About 50 Bastrop County farmers and restauranteurs gathered on Match 26, 2012 at Baxter’s Restaurant.  We shared ideas on how local restaurants could offer more local fare  and we got to know one another.  This TOFGA-sponsored event planted the seeds that will grow in our county and support prosperity and health for all of us!  Check out the pics on the TOFGA Region 2 Facebook page.
