UW Local Food Event & Panel Discussion (Dec 3)

November 30th, 2009

What are the benefits of buying local? Where can one find local foods? What businesses support local growers?

Inspired by the ‘Go Big Read’ initiative, student volunteers have organized a panel presentation to examine these questions and to learn how to become more conscientious consumers in a discussion of local food.

Come to this event to ask questions of local growers, restaurant owners, farmer’s market vendors and other groups committed to supporting local agriculture such as Buy Fresh, Buy Local, Willy Street Co-op, and F.H. King Students of Sustainable Agriculture.

The panel event and discussion will be held in the Open Book Café, College Library, Thursday, December 3rd at 5:00pm.
