Next Meeting – Friday, January 28, Madison, WI, Midwest Value Added Conference
The next Driftless Food and Farm Project meeting will be Friday, January 28 in Madison in conjunction with the Midwest Value Added Conference. We are still finalizing the details, but we are currently planning to use our allotted time to play to our strength: creative networking and alliance building related to infrastructure development. As you would expect, the conference agenda is jam-packed with items of relevance to us. Here’s a link to the full schedule. A limited number of need-based scholarships are available. Let me know if you are interested. More details on the Driftless session and the conference will be forthcoming, but please put the dates on your calendar and register now.
Driftless Presentation at the MOSES Organic Farming Conference February 24-26, 2011 – La Crosse, Wisconsin
Michelle Miller will lead a panel conversation at the next installment of the MOSES conference in late February in La Crosse. Click here for the conference website, and here for the conference flyer.
Wisconsin Local Food Summit
While we’re not part of the formal agenda, we also wanted to remind you of the Wisconsin Local Food Summit, this year held in Elkhart Lake, WI (NE of Fond du Lac). The dates are January 13-14. This year’s theme, “Collaborating to strengthen local and regional food systems in Wisconsin” is particularly relevant to us, though their focus is perhaps on a different scale. Here is the conference website.
If you plan to travel to anyof the above events, please let us know. Look for a more info from us on the Value Added Conference coming soon. And, it’s not too soon to plan carpools. Please use the comment section on the blog for that.
