Year of Plenty

Six Rivers Market in Sandpoint

The Six Rivers Market in Sandpoint, ID is trying out an innovative new model of marketing locally grown foods. It's a cross between a CSA, Amazon.com, and a Farmers Market. You order your items online and then pick them up a few days later at a pick up spot. The Bonner County Bee has the rundown here.  The six rivers web site is here.



Year of Plenty

The Year of Plenty blog was created by Craig Goodwin in the winter of 2008 to chronicle the experiences of his family as they sought to consume everything local, used, homegrown or homemade. That journey was a wonderful introduction to people and movements in the Spokane area who are seeking the welfare of the community through local foods, farmers markets, community gardens, sustainable transportation, and more fulfilling and just patterns of consumption. In 2009 and beyond the blog will continue to report on these relationships and practices, all through the eyes of a family with young children. Craig manages the Millwood Farmers' Market, is a Master Food Preserver and Pastor at Millwood Presbyterian Church. Craig can be reached at goody2230@gmail.com
