LW Dairy & Center for Resilient Cities

September 21, 2010

This Saturday, September 25th, Lynden celebrates National Slow Food Day of Action, “Dig In! Break Ground, Break Bread” by holding a resource fair featuring local food activists, organizations and vendors. This week I’m blogging about a number of the participating groups. Today, get to know LW Dairy and the Center for Resilient Cities.

LW Dairy is a family owned and operated dairy company. Based out of a Grade A dairy plant in Ashippun, Wisconsin, LW Dairy specialize in producing and delivering fresh, rBGH free milk. All the varieties of milk — 2%, 1%, skim, and chocolate — are from local family farms, free of antibiotics and chemicals, and can be delivered to your door in glass bottles to preserve freshness and flavor. LW Dairy also distribute other local and sustainable dairy products, including eggs, cottage cheese, sour cream, and butter, which will be available at the resource fair. For more info, go to their website, http://www.lwdairy.com.

The Madison and Milwaukee based Center for Resilient Cities is a nonprofit dedicated to providing training and tools that “give urban communities the ability to improve their natural environment, citizen health, and local economy.” Since 1996, the Center for Resilient Cities has partnered with citizens, local governments, and other nonprofits for projects including the protection and restoration of 300 downtown acres in Milwaukee and Madison, the production of green infrastructure plans for 1,500 acres in cities throughout Wisconsin, and the creation of the Community Open Space Partnership, a coalition of 50 Wisconsin agencies teaching green development methods to communities across the state. Martha Davis Kipcak, manager of their Milwaukee food program, will be at the resource fair to answer questions and provide information. To learn more, go to http://www.resilientcities.org.
