Food Sovereignty Discussion January 19, 2012

Jan. 19 @6pm-7:45pm

Kellogg Hubbard Library

135 Main St. Montpelier

Phone: 223-3338

 

Join the Rural Vermont statewide discussion on growing local food sovereignty. These discussions are designed to assist in (1) defining a particular food shed’s current food system, (2) identifying gaps and barriers, and (3) creating a long-term vision. Also, learn how Vermont’s tradition of Town Meeting Day resolutions can help communities like Montpelier develop local food sovereignty as a way to further support our agricultural heritage.

Robb Kidd is an organizer at Rural Vermont, a non-profit farmer’s advocacy organization, which has recently launched a local food sovereignty campaign to further elevate discussions outside traditional legislative platforms and back into local communities. Joining Robb will be a farmer to fill in with personalized stories of farming in Vermont.

Co-sponsored by Transition Town Montpelier and Kellogg-Hubbard Library. This is the November Third Thursday Transition Speaker Series at the Library.
