Economic growth envisioned with local/regional food systems

KIMBERLY

Can local and regional food systems support economic growth within their territory? That they can is the premise of a workshop to be held from 9 a.m.-noon on Friday, April 25 at Liberty Hall here.

Five speakers are scheduled at the workshop which is titled "Growing Our Economy and Communities through Local and Regional Food Systems."

Those presenters will include Laura Brown, who is a community development specialist with University of Wisconsin Extension Service Center for Community and Economic Development, and Oren Jakobson, who is the director of farm operations for Riverview Gardens at Appleton.

Other speakers will be Emily Dieringer, who is the health educator for the Winnebago County department of public health; Andy Sell, who is the sales and marketing director for Gourmet Grassfed of Omro; and Alex Tyink, who is the program leader of the community garden partnership for Goodwill of North Central Wisconsin.

Among the topics that will be addressed are a new community food incubator program in the area, community gardens partnerships, and a new regional food hub.

The workshop is being sponsored by the East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission. There is no cost to attend but pre-registration is required.

To register, send an e-mail to ebonnin@ecwrpc.org, call Erin at 920-751-4770, or go on the www.ecwrpc.org website and click on the pre-registration link.
