Loudoun, Northern Piedmont, and Charlottesville Chapters
Piedmont Environmental Council has been a Buy Fresh Buy Local (BFBL) chapter coordinator since 2007. Over that time, our three BFBL chapters have grown to include over 600 farms, farmers' markets, retailers, restaurants, wineries, and specialty food producers all committed to our local food system.
In January 2013, PEC BFBL partners met for the first ever Buy Fresh Buy Local Work Session. Partners created nine action groups; and each generated an action plan to guide the work together on a particular topic over the next twelve months. PEC is facilitating these action groups as they evolve and progress on their own terms.
At this time, eight of the nine working groups are open to other BFBL partners--below you can find the topics list and contact information for group members. Any BFBL partner is encouraged to get in touch with a group if they are interested in a topic.
