Final Call for Growing Home Essay Contest

By Chuck Sudo in Food on Jun 8, 2009 5:00PM

tomato-missionBANNER.jpg A reminder to readers who may have missed it Friday: we're still accepting essay submissions for a chance at winning two tickets to the Growing Home benefit this Thursday at the Cultural Center. To enter, tell us in 150 words (e-mail here) how locally grown produce — Growing Home is an organic CSA providing job training in organic agriculture to homeless and low-income folks — has raised your awareness of how you source the food you eat.

We've received some wonderful essays so far and want to see more before the end of the day. Given how opinionated some of our readers are (coughmatildacough), we know you can do this.
