South Shore Locavores

Calling all Locavores

Join us! Everyone is welcome.

Where does your food come from? How does it get to you? How healthy is it? How can you support local farmers and food producers through your food purchases?

The Kingston Public Library and edible South Shore & South Coast have teamed up to host an ongoing series of programs about the phenomenon of “eating locally.” Please join us in the discovery of our local food.
