Lake Superior Sustainable Farming Association Annual Meeting
January 31st from 12-3pm at the Peace Church on 11th Ave E. in Duluth, MN.
“Bringing your farm to market” will be the theme of this year’s LSSFA annual meeting.
Join us for the yearly report of what great things are happening in our regions food system. Take some time out of winter to think about soil not snow. Enjoy some locally farmed soup, and fresh bread! Talk with other local growers about seeds, season extension or just your crazy new idea for next season.
Learn about opportunities to sell your farm or garden products to local institutions, schools and restaurants. Board President Charlie Danielson will be announcing the USDA Healthy Northland Farm to School grant that was awarded and will help our regions children connect with the food they eat and bring the food from your farm to help feed the next generation.
This year we are happy to have Key note speaker Max Kane from FarmMatch.com. He will be going over all the great things his company is working on to help connect farmers to everyone and help connect our region with a virtual food hub.
Stick around for our business meeting, vote in and welcome our new board members and Chapter Coordinator. See you there!
