FOR HEALTHY, SUSTAINABLE FOOD, YOU NEEDN'T GO MUCH
FURTHER THAN YOUR COMMUNITY OR YOUR OWN BACKYARD
 
 
 
Dear --FNAME--,
We are back with a special Thanksgiving edition. Enjoy VegOut, Bedford's source for growing, buying, sharing, and eating local food to support a sustainable, local food system. 

Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy holiday and remind you to buy and support local food throughout the winter! 
 
 
Falling for you...

Leaves are a wonderful resource for your yard and garden, but many of us spend too much time, energy and money (and create great amounts of noise and pollution) to get rid of them! Put those precious leaves to work for YOU instead.
