Join Nicolle Timm for a look at the Central Oregon Locavore scene at the Redmond Public Library on Tuesday, February 21 at 6:30 pm

During her presentation, Timm will explain the grassroots food and local faming movement in Central Oregon. “Getting involved can make a difference,” says Timm. She will also address the nutritional advantages of fresh, local food vs. commercial, mass-produced products.
