Are you a farmer? A community gardener? A food entrepreneur or activist? Do you just love delicious, local, Mid-South food?
If you answered "yes!" to any of those questions, then join GrowMemphis on Monday, February 6th at the Farm to Table Conference for Mid-South Producers at the Memphis Bioworks Foundation. It will be a day of friendly and meaningful discussion on our local food system, followed by a screening of the film, Cafeteria Man, and a Q&A with the star himself, Toni Geraci. There will also be ample opportunity to build new partnerships in our local food system and to catch up with old ones at the networking lunch, which will be provided by local farmers and the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Garden.
The movement to build a better food system in and around Memphis has made great strides over the past few years and we have the ability to keep the momentum going, and to increase it! The Farm to Table Conference presents an excellent opportunity to do just that. No one who is serious about improving our local food system should miss it!
