Check the page for the Directory of Local Food Sources. There is a link at the top of the page to the new Gulf Coast Food Guide published by ASAN (Alabama Sustainable Agriculture Network). This guide provides information on sources of local food statewide with links to the different regions of Alabama. The Gulf Coast section (Baldwin and Mobile Counties) was made possible through the hard work of LFPI in gathering this information. Jo Ann Wettlaufer was responsible for coordinating this effort locally, organizing the information, and submitting it to ASAN. If you have a farm or upick operation and are not listed, please let ASAN know. We are hoping this guide will be updated as new information becomes available.
Community Gardeners: - LFPI is pleased to announce that all garden beds are fully occupied now, but there is a waiting list for interested community members. Contact us if you'd like to be added to the waiting list.
