Celebrating the life and contributions of Teresa Birtles

Join us at the Woolery Farmers’ Market at 10:30 am on August 7th for a celebration of Teresa Birtles’ life and dedication to the local food movement.

Teresa was a local food pioneer, leading the movement in the creation of new and diverse farmers' markets, while still fostering older markets. She introduced CSA's to our community, connected local farmers with local chefs, and provided tireless legwork toward forming an organization dedicated to buying directly from local farmers in order to help those members of  our community in the greatest need. She touched so many lives through her roles as mother, grower, colleague, and friend.

Let’s come together as a community to remember this amazing woman. We’ll open up the mic for those that want to share a memory, story, contribution that Teresa made, or how your life was touched by her presence. Bring your tribute to Teresa along with a lawn chair or blanket.
