Virtual Local Food Systems Panel
Time & Location
About The Event
How do we build a stronger local food system? We're bringing together four local food leaders to talk about the intersection of food production, sourcing, consumer impact, and supporting diverse businesses in our region. 66% of Dane County total land is taken care of by farmers. How it's managed, who tends the land, and where the yields go in our community are considerations for building a strong food system that leads to community wellbeing and acceleration of sustainability. Panelists will include: Elena Terry, Executive Chef & Founder of Wild Bearies,on indigenous food knowledge and resilient food systems; Kingsley Gobourne will share his experience starting Artemis Provisions and Cheese during this past year; Claire Strader, the Organic Vegetable Educator for Extension Dane County and FairShare CSA Coalition, will talk about how community supported agriculture has evolved this year and the perspective of farmers on providing food. Moderated by Jess Guffey Calkins, Community Food Systems Educator with Extension Dane County, who will also provide data and background knowledge on what we see produced and sold locally.
