Walking is a great way to stay fit, meet friends, and enjoy the outdoors! On June 3, join us for guided walks starting at 10:30 AM and 12 Noon or grab a map and venture out on your own—along the way sample delicious, healthy foods from local producers. Dogs on leashes are welcome to join the fun!

students who have been studying local food and farms.
