Community Food Systems Annual Event

January 12 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm


The Community Food Systems Program is celebrating its fourth year! This daylong event lifts up best practices around the region within all areas of community food systems. Come learn, engage, and discuss ways to promote community engagement, collective action, and food systems projects including edible landscapes, food hubs, shared-use kitchens, and more.

Registration is now open at this link. The cost of $25 helps cover breakfast and lunch. Please bring your own water bottles in an effort to conserve resources. 

This gathering is meant to build up partners and promote collaboration, sharing and networking for creative and collaborative projects. There will be plenty of time for open space for dialogue and brainstorming.

Come learn about others’ good work, and share your experiences and projects through the lightning round and poster session. If you are interested in presenting a poster, please check this option in your registration.  Staff from the Community Food Systems program will follow up with a template for the poster.  Printing is free for the poster. 

The event is open to all individuals, organizations and businesses interested in contributing and participating in their community food systems.

Limited travel scholarships are available.  If you have questions regarding travel scholarships, poster presentations, or event logistics, please email Courtney Long.
