Issue: September 25, 2014
Good morning, readers!
Do you enjoy locally grown produce and meats? Well, you're in luck!
We've got a Farm to Table-filled issue for you this week. This is our
second annual special issue aimed at shining the spotlight on the local
agriculture community. This time around, our feature package focuses on
women in ag and the increasing role they're playing out in the fields,
getting their hands dirty. But check out other stories throughout the
issue, too, for Farm to Table-themed stories. In Greenways, for
instance, we highlight the Buy Fresh Buy Local campaign that's uniting
small farmers with restaurants and groceries. In 15 Minutes, we
interview Colleen Cecil, the head of the Butte County Farm Bureau. And
just to offer a little something different, in my column, Homegrown, I
interview a local woodworker who makes some beautiful tables (among
other things) at which to eat all this local bounty.
In other news: Assistant News Editor Howard Hardee gets a little dirty
himself out cleaning the creeks left trashed mostly by homeless
encampments; staff writer Ken Smith delves a little deeper into the
controversy brewing at Butte College involving football players and
sexual assaults; and Smith also takes a tour of the new Jewish
children's library at the Chabad House in honor of Rosh Hashana. (Happy
New Year if this is your holiday!)
As always, have a great week and keep on readin' on!
