If you have a local food business, or have thought about starting one, plan to attend Growing Your Local Food Business event at the Sheridan County Public Library, Inner Circle Room, on March 22 at noon. Everyone is welcome, but advance registration is appreciated.

Casper resident and well-known local foods advocate, LeAnn Miller, better known as the “Veggie Lady,” will share her time-tested advice on how to expand your local foods production business. With her many years of growing and marketing local food in Wyoming, Miller brings valuable skills to the local foods community. She has been the driving force behind multiple local food activities in Casper and throughout Wyoming, including the Casper Community Greenhouse Project and the Natrona County School District’s Farm to School Program. She’s a key player in the local food procurement programs for the Food Bank of Wyoming and school districts across the state.

While growing her own gardening and marketing business, Miller helped found the Wyoming Food Coalition as well as the WY Food Matters and Wyoming Farm-to-Plate stakeholder networks. Currently she is the local food broker for Fresh Foods Wyoming and the Eat Wyoming Online Farmers Market, connecting producers and consumers throughout the state.
