2012 22.3 WOW! September 9-15, 2012

Celebrate Washington Organic Week (WOW!) with Tilth Producers, September 9-15, 2012. The goal of WOW! is to educate consumers about how to make healthy and ethical food choices, buy in-season, local organic foods, and support local sustainable farms and food businesses.

Last year’s campaign was incredibly successful reaching more than 500,000 consumers and we are seeking to increase our scope in 2012. Our goal is to have everyone in Washington State know more about the wonderful organic produce grown right here, and all the reasons buying local and organic makes sense.

We are asking for your help in this effort. The best way to connect buyers to our mission is to help them get to know you – Washington’s Organic Farmers! Send us a photo of you on your farm and tell us why you choose to farm organically. We’ll highlight your story on our website and Facebook page during WOW!

We plan to host several fun-filled events that we hope you’ll attend.
These include:

Organic Beer & Chocolate Tasting at Theo Chocolate
Friday, September 14th, 2012 – 6:30 – 10:00 PM
3400 Phinney Avenue North, Seattle

What could be better than the pairing of a great beer with a delicious craft-made chocolate? How about if they were both organic! As part of WOW!, join Tilth Producers and Theo Chocolate for an organic chocolate and beer tasting at the Theo Chocolate Factory in Fremont. For $20 guests get to taste the Northwest’s finest organic brews, which will be paired with one of Theo Chocolate’s innovative flavors. This event is open to anyone 21 and up. All proceeds will benefit Tilth Producers of Washington.
