Suzy spent another great night chatting with Lydia about the opening of the market. Listen in and enjoy!
To fund the purchase of market equipment Suzy is seeking a crowd sourced micro loan, or CSL (community supported loan).
Benefits, including transferring lending power from institutions to individuals and 0% interest rates, have made this style loan empowering for the community.
Why loan to a 0% interest investment? Although this loan will not generate you more income, intangible returns like better access to high quality food, revitalization of Frostburg’s Main Street, creation of jobs, strengthening of the community, and the long term effects of these returns (just to name a few) will be the impact that Wholesome Harvest will have on the community.
However if the total request amount is not funded in time the application will expire, and all funds will be lost!
Loans amounts can be as small as $25 and will be paid back in 3 years. Please lend today so that the market can open on time. Because of the legal aspects of private lending the loan is through Kiva, a non-profit that handles the disbursement and organization of the loan.
To help make this market a reality a loan can be made by Visiting Kiva Here.
Last weekend the interview with Lydia went live:

The audio from the talk Suzy Snow gave at Focus Frostburg, April 20, 2016 discussing local & seasonal food. Hopefully this will inspire you to try a food adventure this year. Enjoy.

Great news from the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF)!
“The way the approval process works in Maryland is that a producer interested in selling pet milk files an application for registration of the product with the Office of the State Chemist, a division of the Maryland Department of Agriculture. If the State Chemist approves the application then the applicant is officially registered and can start selling the product.”
