NAFSN Retreat 2022

NAFSN will host its annual Leadership Circle Retreat on Oct 14-16, 2022. Together we will explore the coastal foodways of Southern Maryland along the Potomac and Wicomico rivers of Cobb Island.

This event will be "stone soup" style: we'll cook together using whatever we bring, grow, forage and catch. Locals will be invited to share expertise and lore.

This event is open to any member who participates regularly at our monthly Leadership Circle meetings. There is no charge to attend other than to get yourself there. Come ready to cook and tell story.  Space is limited.
