"Reach out and touch someone"
The Shared Harvest board recognizes that to be successful, our main focus needs to be educating the community and addressing these questions: What is a coop? What is Shared Harvest? How can I participate? What’s in it for me? What’s in it for the community?
Members of the board are willing to come and speak at neighborhood associations, service clubs, churches, synagogues, non-for-profits, and businesses - even at your next good food party. Carol at 847-873-9995 to schedule a talk or presentation.
