Through their Eat Local Initiative, Lowcountry Local First (LLF) has built a coalition of 90 farmers, over 30 apprentices and 45 chefs working together to create a vibrant local food economy in the Charleston area. Nikki Seibert, Sustainable Agriculture Program Director, will outline the nonprofit’s work to strengthen community support for local-independent businesses and farmers. These initiatives include facilitating growers groups, a farmer apprenticeship program and an incubator farm. See what’s growing to sustain Charleston and the possibilities ahead for coastal Georgia.
