January 2017 ALAP Meeting Recap

The ALAP crew braved a snowy night January 12 for a special “field trip” potluck meeting at presenter Jeffrey Schlaack’s Buzzadoo Cafe.  Buzzadoo is located near NMC and TC Central High at 1051 Milliken and features a great living room/lounge vibe.  Jeffrey is open seven days a week from morning until about 6pm and offers coffees, teas and a variety of baked goods from his gluten-free kitchen.  We sampled scuffins and other treats while learning about his plans to expand his food offering and extend his opening hours.  Jeffrey is currently exploring different routes to fund his expansion including a potential crowdfunding campaign.  For those who would like to learn more, stop by his shop and try a scuffin or check out his page on Facebook.

Our next potluck meeting is planned for Thursday, Feb 9 at Groundwork with speakers TBA.  And if you will be attending this year’s Northern Michigan Small Farm Conference (1/28 at the Grand Traverse Resort), stop by the expo and say hi as ALAP will have a table again this year.
