Local Food Alliance envisions a thriving community where people are nourished by fresh locally and regionally grown food every day. Their publication, the Wood River Locally Grown Guide, cultivate collaboration, inspire discovery, and highlight the vibrancy of our local food community. Through the development of a local food procurement framework, LFA is helping local businesses, organizations and institutions develop plans for consistently purchasing locally grown food.
The Locally Grown Guide drives consumers to purchase more local food, increasing farmer income and helping ensure an ample supply of nourishing food for our community.
5B Resilience Gardens educates and connects our local gardeners on regenerative home gardening practices, fostering stewards of the land, and encouraging the production of a resilient food supply.
Published annually, the free Guide is the only resource that connects residents and visitors to the high-quality seasonal food produced in our regional foodshed.Learn more about the Locally Grown Guide
