A Word from the Warehouse – September 2017

by Andy Hollis

Our friends at Clif Bar trekked to our South Carolina warehouse all the way from California to get to know GrowFood Carolina. Like GrowFood, Clif Bar is committed to creating a healthier, more sustainable food system, and the Clif Bar Family Foundation is a consistent and generous financial supporter of our food hub. We are proud and humbled to share a video and profile of GrowFood made by their team. You might recognize some familiar faces like Rosebank Farm's Sidi Limehouse and Chef Mike Lata.

JUST ANNOUNCED: Join us at the Fourth Annual Mushroom Gathering on Friday, October 20! Some of Charleston's most popular and well-known chefs and brewers will serve mushroom-inspired bites and beers at our warehouse. Farmers and foragers will be there to share stories from the field. It's going to be a fun time with fungis (and gals)! Find out more and pick up your tickets here.

With Irma approaching, Charleston Gold Rice farmer Jimmy Hagood braces for disaster … again

Tropical Storm Irma was yet another extreme weather event to impact our local farmers, including GrowFood partner farmer Jimmy Hagood of Lavington Farms. Ahead of the storm, Charleston City Paper connected with Jimmy to see how he prepares and protects his Charleston Gold Rice crop.

Irma's arrival – after a wet summer and rise in pest populations – further signals how farmers address a changing climate. As Sara notes in this same article, it is with resilience.

Jimmy was worried he might see an incredible storm surge or total crop loss – as he did after Hurricane Matthew. Fortunately, following Irma, the odds look good for him and his rice fields. Over the next few weeks, we plan to update you on how the rest of our farmers are faring after Irma. Stay tuned for more news from us on Facebook or Instagram.
