The Growing Food and Profit group will hold its February meeting Saturday, Feb. 1 from 10 a.m to noon at the Des Moines Area Religious Council (DMARC) at 1435 Mulberry St. in Des Moines.
Luke Elzinga of DMARC will host the meeting and will discuss what DMARC is doing to feed folks in and near Des Moines and what would be of interest to market gardeners about their operation.
Aubrey Alvarez with Eat Greater Des Moines will also talk about her work with the food system in greater Des Moines and the gleaning and food-rescue operation they operate.
New members are welcome to bring a guest to the tour and presentations.
Whether you are a food grower, someone interested in growing food or an “eater” of locally grown foods, you are welcome to attend.
The GFP group is sponsored by ISU Extension in Dallas County. For more information, contact Linda Nelson at 515-491-3984 or Lsnelson1@hotmail.com.
