This is an opportunity for producers/harvesters/gatherers of food to come together in order to network, address infrastructure gaps and share successes and challenges. The full-day event brings together people from our region and beyond who are interested in healthy vibrant food systems. By strengthening our food system, more producers and harvesters are able to sustain their businesses and more residents have access to healthy food at affordable prices.
