Eric Holt-GimÃ©nez is keynoting Saturday 1/26 at the Wisconsin Farmers Union convention in Appleton!
Eric Holt-GimÃ©nez, author and executive director of Food First, grew up milking cows and pitching hay in Point Reyes, California. Heâ€™ll share how farmers and consumers can transform our food system to restore justice to American agriculture. His book A Foodies Guide to Capitalism: Understanding the Political Economy of What We Eat has served as a consumer primer on many of the issues that Wisconsin farmers have organized around for more than a century.
If you are a Wisconsin Farmers Union member, this is worth the drive to hear. (FYI Organic Valley members are automatically members.) If you aren’t a member, sign up and attend! BTW, members need not be a county delegate to attend. Members may attend and “vote their own vote” if you like.
