APLS Are Growing in the Lower MidWest

APLS season is spreading south from the Great Lakes. It has now moved into the Lower Midwest - Missouri, Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska. If you are in Southern Illinois, we're considering you a Great Laker but if you think of yourself as a Lower Midwesterner, instead, hop in here. The fantastic Lori from Life in Webster Groves has offered to act as organizer for your region. She would love some friends - lots of them - but, in particular, someone who would like to help co-organize in that region would be most welcome.

What does this mean for you Lower Midwest APLS? The sky's the limit. Trading growing and local food tips. Sharing tools. Swapping clothes. Personal get togethers. Political organizing to get green measures passed. Anything is possible and Lori sounds like she's got some fun ideas up her sleeve.

Stay tuned for Lori's official launch of the Lower Midwest APLS post (along with a cute little button) soon. Lori can be reached at ltepler(at)gmail(dot)com.

And don't feel bad if you don't have an APLS region yet. All we need is for somebody to take on the challenge of organizing! If you're up to the job for your region, send us an email at aplscarnival (at) gmail (dot) com and we'll get you set up!

What region will be in APLS growing season next?
