Announcing Washtenaw County's HomeGrown Local Food Summit 2010

Our confirmed date and time for the HomeGrown (in Washtenaw County) Local Food Summit this year is Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010, from 8am - 4pm.  This one day conference will take place in the Dana Building on the U-M Campus. The fee for the day will be $30 (or $18 for conference registration, and $12 for optional lunch).  Scholarships are available.  Click here to register.

The delicious lunch, again from A Knife's Work, will include locally sourced soup, salad, bread, cheese and dessert.  There will be a vegetarian option.  Please note: We are working to make this a zero waste event.  Please bring your own table service and coffee cup. Door prizes for best portable lunch setup. :)

The agenda for the day will include:
- Coffee and breakfast snacks
- Local Food Victories
- Networking, poster session, and lunch
- Developing a county-wide local food campaign
- Skill-building workshops on topics like: Using Social Media, Food Politics, Zoning 101 and more
- Committing to our local food community

To join the conversations and working groups we started last year, go to the Local Food Summit Ning site.  There is a new group for Food Summit 2010!

We need volunteers and we are a super fun group to work with! If you would like to help, please email
