Rural Vermont supporters from near and far will convene on Wednesday, May 4th from 6:30 – 9 pm at the West Monitor Barn in Richmond for Rural Vermont’s 2011 Annual Meeting. Rural Vermont is thrilled to host this year’s keynote speaker, Bob St. Peter of Sedgwick, Maine, the first town in the US to declare food sovereignty! The event is free for Rural Vermont members and all kids, and $10 for non-members.
The night will conclude with keynote address “Local Food, Local Rules: Creating Food and Farming Policies that Work for your Community,” by Bob St. Peter. St. Peter comes to Vermont from Sedgwick, Maine, the town that made national headlines recently when they unanimously voted to adopt the Local Food & Community Self-Governance Ordinance.
