BUILDING THE FUTURE

LOCAL FOOD ECONOMY

You're Invited to the 2nd Roundtable Discussion

Monday April 26th, 2021 2pm - 4pm 

We're Asking Everyone to Pull Up a Seat at the Table

Our first roundtable discussion on March 22nd was a HUGE success, filled with rich conversation about what's working and a few challenges that our local food producers and manufacturers are facing along with a LOT of great ideas to overcome those challenges. 

Join us as we meet once again to take the conversation a step further.

We want all of our local food producers and manufacturers, growers, restaurants, and retail establishments to join us. We'll talk more about the resources already exist, and what's been developed since our first roundtable and how else we can even further grow our regional food-related economy. 

Learn Together From Each Other

Each of us holds a piece of the information and the ingredients to create a thriving food ecosystem. We need you to bring yours to help us shape what that ideal infrastructure could be.  

As we as a local community follow up on the Local Foods, Local Places initiative, we want to continue the conversation of what is, what works, what doesn't, and what could be. 

We envision a supportive, integrated food ecosystem where our farmers live viably, our makers and manufacturers are supported with the training and resources they need to scale, and the local food buyers have easy and affordable access to utilizing the amazing resources they have in their own backyard. 

Food Producers

If you are a food grower or food-related producer, we need you here – whether you are a small micro farmer, have a large national wholesale distribution production, or produce a product locally.
