What’s Happening at Leo’s?

The following is a press release to be submitted to local news outlets:

Change makers and sustainability experts from Sweden and the Netherlands came to Superior on Saturday to share with locals how communities around the world are relying more on each other and less on money to get their needs met. The event was catered by Brick House Bakers and Aravaipa Nanas and marked the first official gathering at Leo’s Community Development Center – formally known as Leo’s Grocery & Meat Mart. The center is focusing on effectively working together to pass on a better community for generations to come, and sees Superior becoming a global inspiration in community living. To that end, the center will hold more community gatherings, incubate sustainable projects, and host a diverse range of world-class speakers. In this way, Leo’s Community Development Center will aid the town of Superior in taking a leadership position in self-sufficiency, sustainability, and relocalization. The center is also home to Community Harvesters, a passionate team focusing on local food systems development. The Harvesters are in the midst of launching the first of many community gardens around town, and also help staff the Farmer’s Market on 2nd and 4th Friday’s at the Food Hub. Along with this, they partner with households who already have food growing in their yards and want to sell their surplus.
