Why should you become a member of the Verde Valley Agricultural Coalition? Because we’re doing things that make a difference. The Verde Valley Ag Coalition is committed to increasing the Verde Valley’s access to local foods and one of the ways we’re doing that is by joining hands with Local First Arizona. As a partner with Local First we’re developing our voice and raising it to become an advocate for farmers and consumers hungry for a stable and accessible local food system. We hope to be adding access to Local First’s Good Food Finder, a first-of-its-kind data base that lists all of Arizona’s farmers and what they produce.
We’re also working hard to find and offer our members discounts to local farm and agricultural events. And we’ll be launching our own chat forum where producers and buyers can meet and exchange information. The newest entry on our wish list for the Verde Valley is to create and grow our own “Verde Valley” Brand, so we get to know the many small food producers, including our own local farmers and ranchers.
So fill out the form below and add your organization to ours as we carve the way to a stable, sustainable, accessible local food system in the Verde Valley.
