I have been working with Susan and Harley on an exciting project for our wonderful Bow-Edison area. We're calling it the Bow-Edison Food Trail Map. It stretches from I-5 to the waters of Samish island. It helps guide visitors to all of the unique farms and places that are involved with our locally produced products. We feel that this map would be a clever way to nudge visitors to explore our area more.
We would ask each participating location pay $35 to cover a bit of the design and and all of the printing fees. It would be printed as double sided rack card with a list of participating businesses on the back. Each location will be provided a stack of maps, which we would ask be that you make available to public. This is cooperative effort where we actively promote each others businesses.
There will also be a website that duplicates this map with links to your business websites. Please see the attached image.
This is totally optional. We're not making any money because we are only charging what it takes to produce it. You'll stay on the map as long as you want to participate and pay for the cost of printing more as needed. Once we gauge interest from all of you we will let you know how many maps we will provide this first go round. Hopefully enough to take care of this year's growing season.
I will be in touch with you either in person or by phone to soon. We hope you are interested in supporting the Bow-Edison Food Trail!
