Dec 6 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

logothumbGreater Roxbury Business Association (GRBA) invites you to a Community Holiday Party, Saturday, December 6 at 5:30 pm at the Roxbury Arts Center. GRBA members as well as the entire community are invited to celebrate the end of a great year for the Roxbury Business Community: in 2014 three new businesses opened in town – Roxbury General, Roxbury Wine & Spirits Store and Petra Estiatorio Greek Restaurant at Shephard Hills Golf Course, The Roxbury Motel announced a significant expansion, and hundreds of tourists flooded Main Street. This is a great time to show our gratitude to the supportive Roxbury community for shopping local, and contributing to the prosperity of our town. We encourage everyone to wear a hat, and tip it to each other as a community.

On December 6 there will be many festivities in town. This year GRBA also sponsored a Holiday Decoration Contest which ends on December 5 – winners will be announced on December 18. On December 6 at 5:30 pm the Roxbury Christmas Tree Lighting will take place in the village square. And, at 7:30 pm The Roxbury Girl Scouts will be caroling at the Roxbury Arts Group’s Arts Market. We heard that Santa will be in town too!

GRBA’s Holiday Party begins at 5:30 pm at the Roxbury Arts Center. We’ll talk about the Dreamer’s Campaign started in January this year, which will continue in January 2015, we’ll share news from the business community, and we’ll also highlight ideas for next year. Come, be part of the conversation.

Grow Your Markets: “Producing for the Hub” Workshop @ Lucky Dog Farm Store & Cafe
Dec 16 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

logothumbThe Center for Agricultural Development & Entrepreneurship (CADE) and Lucky Dog Organic Farm today announced the Lucky Dog Local Food Hub has been selected for funding through the Local Food Promotion Program (LFPP) of the USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service.

The Hub currently offers product aggregation and transportation, buyer introductions and educational workshops. With LFPP funding, the program will scale-up these offerings to encourage agricultural entrepreneurship and help local farmers expand into high-quality, high-value markets through personalized buyer and producer activities.

“Through the Local Food Promotion Program, we will focus on 1.) Hub Development and 2.) Producer Development,” said Sonia Janiszewski, the program’s project manager. “While the Hub implements efficiencies to transport more product to more buyers, CADE will be preparing producers to access the growing and unmet demand of the New York City market.”

Activities funded by the LFPP include:

Hub Development: Creating operational efficiencies to expand the quantity and types of products being handled by the hub as the number of engaged producers increases
Producer Development: Facilitating quarterly “Producing For The Hub” workshops and New York City buyer tours, during which participating producers spend a day meeting prospective buyers in NYC. One-on-one consulting is also available for producers needing technical assistance to serve the Hub

During this workshop, producers will learn more about the activities made possible through LFPP and how to become part of the Hub’s producer line-up for 2015.
