Registration closes a week from today for the 2016 Farm Route to Prosperity Summit - register now. This summit, being put on by our friends at the NW Michigan Food and Farming Network will focus on what's being done and what we should do to continue working toward the goal of 20% local food by 2020. We need your voice!
After a certified local foods lunch, there will be break-out sessions to brainstorm ideas, make plans, and commit to taking action over the next 12 months. Session topics may include: education, wellness, direct/indirect sales, farm to institution programs, agribusiness and more. There's something for everyone to learn, share, and take action.
The summit is intended for anyone interested in the northwest Michigan food system (so if you live and eat here, that's you!). Farmers, consumers, institutions, non-profits, students and more: come and work together at the summit.
Registration is $15 for farmers and students, or $30 for all others. Registration closes at 8:30am on Friday, February 19.
We'll be there! Will you?
