Dear Freight Shed Alliance Friends,
As we wrap up our first winter season of the Bath Farmers Market I wanted to call your attention to April's market mornings and would like to encourage everyone to help get the word out and be involved. These mornings are such a great time to strike up the conversations that get people to become part of the BFSA.
On March 15th, Andrew Deci gave a tour of the Freight Shed to a group from the Maine Downtown Institute Conference - it was safe to say that they left energized to tackle what may seem like impossibly challenging projects in their own down towns based on what they saw. It is daunting at times but with this team that is growing it is very encouraging!
Mark your Calendars!
Our next meeting BFSA will be on April 10th at noon in the Freight Shed. It's an important meeting as we look toward summer projects and events at the Freight Shed.
For the time being our Hands On Fridays have been put on hold as we regroup. With warmer weather promised we look forward to organizing a variety of work groups to suit different schedules.
