For years, Ogallala Commons has worked to support local food systems in a variety of ways. We have hosted conferences on the topic, work to create Community Internships based on local food production, provided education workshops and tools for gardeners and at each OC sponsored event, we do our best to use local produced foods for our guests. In 2011 we began Project: Local Llano. Local Llano is a blog about all things local food in the Llano Estacado Region. It features nearly 60 stories about local food producers, gardening, recipes, restaurants, Commuity Supported Agriculture Programs, Farmer’s Markets and more. You can check out the blog by clicking here: Local Llano
Thanks to support from Farm Aid, we will begin the process of putting together a book about local foods in the Llano Estacado based on the Local Llano Blog. Follow the Local Llano facebook to keep up to date on the book’s progress.
