Green Business People and Planet Award:

Hummingbird Wholesale:
If you are not familiar with Hummingbird Wholesale, let me introduce you.  Hummingbird is a bulk food distributor offering organic, local and regional food crops to over 500 wholesale customers from Seattle to San Francisco.  Their products are carried in many of our local natural food stores, and they are open to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 AM to 2 PM.  The more you buy the greater your discount.  I believe they also give discounts to seniors and people who come in using alternative forms of transportation.

Connection to The Eugene Chapter, Weston A. Price Foundation:
Hummingbird is owned by Julie and Charlie Tilt, and some of you may remember that Julie started the Eugene Chapter as our first Chapter Leader in 1999!  She was instrumental in getting Sally Fallon to stop by Eugene in 2001, and give one of the first presentations of The Oiling Of America.
