Hello EAT LOCAL friends!
...time to celebrate what the season has in store for us...
Let's continue our monthly tradition of gathering together to share food and watch another great film!!!

"GROWING LOCAL - The Truth About YOUR Food"
brought to you by Raw & Juicy and Twin Oaks Farm

Artesano Jewelry and Gallery
Fountain Square, DWNT FWB

We will hang out and eat yummy food from 5:00-6:00ish, then together clean up and and get ready for the movie which will start promptly at 6:30. 

Remember, this is a POTLUCK - so, please bring a food (with serving utensils) or beverage to share featuring local/regional foods.

And it would be great if you could bring plates and cups for your own use, as well - though we will have some on-hand.

Here's a reminder on our food guidelines:
The main portion of any dish should be from local or regional ingredients grown or harvested in Florida, Georgia, or Alabama. For example, zucchini bread should be made with zucchini that's as local as possible. But the flour, eggs, and other ingredients could be from anywhere, though if you can get them local--or organic—all the better.
Any meat should be from organic or free-range animals. And yes, harvested can include wild plants, nuts, fish or game.

Here is a list of what's available in town:

Gaia's Natural Foods

Sip & Spin @ 
Full Circle Gallery
1st Friday and 3rd Saturday of each month
6:00 - 8:00 pm
Bring a friend and a bottle of wine. Relax and try your hand at pottery- no experience necessary. Everybody gets the chance to make at least one pot! Sip and spin is a fun time to socialize and see if pottery is something you are really interested in. Pottery is a multiple step project. You will create a piece or two during your first session. To complete the project you will need to sign up for another session to glaze your work. You can finish your piece by signing up for another Sip & Spin session, or by registering for Personalized Study in Clay.
Stop by the gallery or call 850-362-8041 to register.
