To Market To Market

We’re expecting (maybe) a good soaking rain on Friday, then a cool, fall-like day for the Market Breakfast in Floyd. Good food, old and new friends, the smell of Red Rooster coffee and autumn in the air! What’s not to like?

Hope to see you there. And don’t forget to visit the MEMBERSHIP table. You may have been a SustainFloyd supporter, and donated time, money or ideas over the past couple of years. But only for the past month, SF has become a membership organization, and we would love to have your official involvement. Like the membership page says…

Join us in addressing global challenges at the local level.
