WSCSA NEWS AND UPDATES

Hi Members,

We're in need of two volunteers tomorrow, in the 3:45-5:45pm and 5-7pm time slots. We really need help to make pickup run smoothly, so if you're available to volunteer, please sign up here or email us at our info account.  

Our next Market Day is August 22nd! The form is live, so you can place your orders here by Thursday August 17. We've added some fun summer BBQ options this time, including hamburgers and hotdogs. Sfoglini Pasta is also offering a summer treat – Basil Reginetti. 

Also, if you're interested in purchasing something from Lewis Waite Farms that isn't on the order form, please reach out to us! There's a lot to choose from, so we're happy to accommodate requests for additional items when possible. 

Don't forget, we'll also be hosting a Market Day Pre-Order Happy Hour during pickup the week before, August 15. So be sure to swing by and grab a drink, taste test some products, and order on the spot if you're interested. 
 


THIS WEEK IN FOOD TALK

regenerative ag

What is Regenerative Agriculture – and how can the food industry promote to consumers responsibly?

I've been hearing this new phrase in food news recently, regenerative agriculture. What does it mean? Essentially it goes further than regular organic farming practices to insure more responsible soil usage. It's been around for decades but several farmers and organizations are working to bring it to the mainstream. It's a good thing, because regenerative ag helps reduce climate change; soil fertility is proven to be directly linked to reduced CO2 in the air. But how will promoting farms and products made with regenerative ag practices contribute to label confusion? How will it compete or cooperate with organic labeled products? 

Read more here.

Cheers,
The WSCSA Core Committee
