You’ve probably heard by now about the North Coast Co-op’s Sustainable Agriculture Expo this weekend. It’s a free event where local farmers, producers and advocates for a sustainable food system will share their knowledge.
The Tofu Shop will be there offering samples, including our fabulous new organic, raw cultured sauerkraut.
Come meet your tofu maker! Learn how we make our organic, artisan tofu, soy milk, and deli products.
The free expo is at Redwood Acres in Eureka from noon to 4 pm on Saturday.
Also exciting is the featured talk (not free) by Joel Salatin, the pasture-based farmer featured in Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma, about food emancipation and sustainable farming from 10 a.m. to noon.
Hope to see you there. For more info, visit the Co-op’s website.
It’s the last weekend of September, the midst of Indian Summer, and there are lots of great events coming up. The Tofu Shop donated products to support these worthwhile organizations and events. Check them out.
