I just got this email from Gail Bisesi, one of the Cleveland Bridge Builders
this year. Gail is organizing a Farmers Market Cash Mob (and a nice tie-in variation to the post yesterday). I’ll be there, and I’m really looking forward to a Breakfast Burrito – I hope you can make it, too!
I hope you will join me this Saturday, June 2 as we MOB THE MEADOW.
Meet in Howe Meadow in the Cuyahoga Valey National Park at the Farmers Market Info booth at 9:30 am and we’ll explore the market with the help of some great folks who would love to share their love of local food with you and your family.
Who knows, one of the three new people you meet during the cash mob may be the farmer you get your next fresh Thanksgiving turkey from. Bring the kids, bring your bikes, take a train ride, explore the valley and see all it has to offer – you’ll want to come back every week.
More details follow and please forward this to anyone and everyone you think of.
Lastly, thank you for your support of my civic vision.
PS: If you can’t make this week’s local food cash mob, stay tuned, I have another in the works for July!
