FOOD EXPO-The Kansas City Food Circle is celebrating the 15th year for our Eat Local (and Organic!) Expos, which kick off the local growing and farmers market season each spring.

Visitors can buy local, organic produce; free-range meat, eggs and dairy; and vegetable seedlings for home gardening. The Expos are also a great place to learn more about and sign up for Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), where you can buy your food directly from farmers.

The Expos also offer opportunities to learn more about local, organic, and free-range food by providing unique, free workshops each year. This year’s workshops will start with “Real Food Your Kids Will Love” from 10:00 to 11:00, presented by Beth Bader, local author of The Cleaner Plate Club. Beth will be giving tips on eating seasonally and locally, especially for families with a busy schedule. The next workshop will be “Small Scale Aquaponics” from 11:30 to 12:30. Led by Maurice Person of Urban Harvest KC, this workshop will teach attendees how to start a home aquaponics system and will cover indoor composting with red wigglers, de-chlorinating and conserving water.

KCFC will also be handing out free copies of the 2013 KC Food Circle Directory of Producers, which provides detailed information on KCFC member farmers and area organic farmers markets. Expo attendees may also join the KC Food Circle and receive a 2013 Eat Local (& Organic!) Dining Card which provides a one-time 10% discount on 14 area restaurants that source their food locally, organically, and free-range.
