The Local Movement–which is, according to Wikipedia, a “collaborative effort to build more locally based, self-reliant food economies”–has long been gaining momentum. But it doesn’t just have to be about eating or shopping local. Last month, Oak Tree Villa got in on the action when it brought together local candidates and constituents.

Oak Tree Villa Welcomes Local CandidatesAccording to executive director Tracy Freudendahl, “We were honored to have with us five local candidates running for election on June 3rd, 2014, including three candidates for Sheriff of Santa Cruz County.”
