 Local Foods Marketing Workshop

(This was originally scheduled for March 19 but has been postponed.)
Join us at our Local Foods Marketing Workshop coming up May 7 at the Sheridan Public Library, Inner Circle Room, from 5pm to 8pm. This free workshop is open to everyone who would like to learn more about marketing their food products. There will be a social media and email marketing session — be sure to bring your smartphone to the workshop for some hands-on experience. There will also be a session on setting up your booth: tents, displaying your goods, handling payments, packaging, signage, and what customers expect from your products.
(The workshop will not cover the basics for a beginning vendor who has never sold their products before, such as food safety, government regulations, or whom to contact for our local markets, but we will have informational handouts available.)
For more information contact Pennie Vance, ag & local foods organizer: penniev@powderriverbasin.org or 307-672-5809.

Annual Meeting

Powder River Basin Resource Council members gather annually to weigh issues and policy positions and pass new resolutions, which become the organization’s official policy. But our Annual Meeting, usually held the first Saturday in November, is more than a policy session. It’s a chance for dedicated citizens and community leaders from throughout the state to gather for a little socializing and to just have some fun. The Annual Meeting is also an opportunity to support our valuable work. The Annual Meeting’s popular Silent Auction is our organization’s most lucrative fundraising event of the year, offering beautiful antiques, locally crafted jewelry, stunning artwork by members and non-members alike, sporting goods, vacation opportunities in Wyoming and around the world, and services provided by professional fishing and hunting guides.

Harvest Celebration & Potluck

Each fall since 2005 the Powder River Basin Resource Council community welcomes one and all to join the fun at our annual Harvest Celebration & Potluck in the Sheridan/Buffalo area. There is something for everyone:  great music, bountiful and fabulous home-cooked food (Powder River provides a locally sourced meat dish, then attendees load the buffet laden with delicious, locally grown and prepared dishes), enticing raffle prizes, and a spirited auction of “Pies by Guys.” This is the time for friends and neighbors to rub elbows, enjoy friendly conversation, and savor good food. Adults and children alike: all are welcome!
