Eat Local - Grow Grain!
Local grain, used for flour, oil, cereals or animal feed, is an untapped integral part of a true local food system. Join us in welcoming June Russell of Greenmarket, GrowNYC to Traverse City. Russell's recent work involves facilitating the production of grains and processing in her community. Learn what she has to say about growing grain right here in our region.
Topics discussed at Grain Day include:
