Summer is becoming a season for change here at the Local Foods Coalition. In the pictures below, you might see some new faces: Maria (Food Hub), Jonathan, and Isabela (both at the Farm Park). We’re so happy to welcome these new team members into our local food family! You may also see some faces change in the next couple of months. Liz will be off to Columbia soon, Seth will be transitioning out of his role mid-August, and Josh will be pursuing a new opportunity at the end of the month. We’re blessed to have each and every one of our staff members for all the seasons they are called to serve our San Luis Valley local foods community.

Read on for pics from our opening Mercadillo, farewell to Equity Coordinator, Josh, what’s in season, upcoming workshops and events, and more.
