I hope you’ll join me for this year’s local food conference put on by the Johnson County Food Council. I attended my first one two years ago, and it made a real impact on me. In some ways, it changed my life. I met dynamic permaculture farmers; was inspired by Dane County’s leadership in urban agriculture; and also got a glimpse into the future of local foods policy in Johnson County. Many of things that we discussed are now bearing fruit.
Our community is fortunate to have such dynamic leadership in local foods policy. Kudos to this years organizers for putting on such a great conference. I am really looking forward to seeing what’s in store for the upcoming year. I hope to see everyone there!
