Take a minute to check out the free workshops being offered by a new project Building Blocks for Local Food Entrepreneurs.

Think Local First, Growing Hope and Whole Foods Market are presenting a series of workshops for established and budding local food entrepreneurs. The four part series addresses topics specific to creating and building a food-based business.

Learn what markets are not being met. How to develop an action plan. How to make access to local retailers and restaurants. And how to grow your existing business with a low interest loan from Whole Foods Market. Along with each panel discussion there will be an opportunity for questions from the audience. Come learn from the experts!

Each session offers specific advice for new and existing businesses. Registration is FREE, but is required for planning purposes. Please use the link provided at the bottom of each workshop description.
