Plans for the Institute for Local Food Systems Innovation Community Meeting

Institute for Local Food Systems Innovation logoCome listen to the plans on how the Institute will grow across the street. This initiative will provide the necessary infrastructure and education for food producers, manufacturers, and entrepreneurs to stimulate the growth of their local businesses. The College community could also benefit from the new infrastructure and educational opportunities the Institute will provide.

Students can learn how they can become involved in our community's new adventures across the street! There are many opportunities coming up, such as getting your hands dirty as we prep for our second annual Seedling Sale. We will present these student opportunities at this event.
