    Description
    We are in the planning stages of the 4th Edition of The Carrot and we want to hear from you! This handy pocket sized publication provides detailed maps of the Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail and all of the places to eat and drink within a mile of the trail. As we look toward the next edition, due out next spring, we would love to sit down and have a chat with a few handfuls of you to tell us about your own personal experiences with the guide. So, let's do lunch!

    On October 24 we will be dining with a selection of Upstate readers at Whistle Stop in Travelers rest and then again at Swamp Rabbit Cafe & Grocery on October 26. If you would like to be a part of this conversation, please let us know and your name will go in the proverbial hat for possible selection to join us for lunch. All you have to do is comment on our recent Facebook or Instagram posts featuring the most recent edition of The Carrot or e-mail brett@edibleupcountry.com. Tell us which of the two dates you are interested in--the 24th at Whistle Stop or the 26th at Swamp Rabbit Cafe, and you will be entered to win. How easy is that?
