SHEBOYGAN — Celebrate local food at Maywood’s Local Food for Global Thought event on Saturday, February 10th.
Sheboygan County and the surrounding area is filled with local food choices. Locally produced foods benefit communities and our environment in several ways. They support our local economy, often have a smaller environmental impact, and help build community among other benefits.
This year’s event will feature local farms, food producers, bakers, and caterers that either produce or feature local foods in their products. A list of vendors can be found online at gomaywood.org.
NOURISH will offer family friendly hands-on activities from 9 AM to 12 PM. Participants will learn about pollinators and color their own seed packet filled with seeds to take home and plant. Activities with maple sugaring will also be presented.
Event admission is free, but donations are kindly accepted. The vendor area is open from 9 AM until 2 PM. Maywood Park is located at 3615 Mueller Road in Sheboygan.
