The 4th annual Growing Green Communities event, "Saving the 30%: Using the Food We Grow," will be a fun-filled day aimed at tackling food waste.  In the US, at least 30% of food is wasted - in the fields, transport systems, grocery stores, restaurants, schools, and in our homes.  Food waste is a huge contributor to climate change as well as a drain on family finances.  At "Saving the 30%" workshop sessions you will learn more about preserving food, composting, and other tools for preventing food waste.

Fight climate change, support sustainable food production and distribution, learn homesteading skills - Be A Food Saver!!
