The Mississippi Tour is set!

The project team will be hitting the road next weekend to cities around the state to promote the project, show off the bus and answer questions. Come by to say hello and check out what we’ve all been working hard on.

On Thursday, July 7, the bus will be in Jackson, MS parked behind Rainbow Coop for Fondren After 5 from 5-8 PM. After some final touches back in Oxford on Friday, the team will head south on Saturday stopping in Starkville at the Community Market from 9-10 AM and will be joined with the Gaining Ground Sustainability Institute of Mississippi crew that is making this all possible! Following the market, the bus will head to the Gulf Coast, making a stop in Moss Point, MS for a benefit at the Pascagoula River Audobon Center from 4-6 PM. Monday, the team will complete the state test tour by heading back up north, stopping in Hattiesburg at the Sunrise Garden Center from 10-11 AM and then completing the trip back to Oxford for a send-off benefit at the Powerhouse from 7-9 PM featuring music from two fantastic local bands, The Blackbird Hour and Silas Reed & Da Books!

Be sure to come on by to check out the bus and meet the team before they hit the road cross-country!
