Join FairShare CSA Coalition and presenting sponsor, Willy Street Co-op, for an entertaining and enlightening evening featuring good food + sustainable farms! The festival will screen a series of beautiful short to medium-length films highlighting a future of healthy and just food systems. Film themes will include sustainable agriculture, food access and veteran farmers.
Each film will be followed by brief TED-style talks from area leaders, providing local context for each film and shedding light on the state of local, fresh and sustainable food in Wisconsin. Speakers will include:
• Sarah Lloyd – Special Projects Coordinator at Wisconsin Farmers Union, President of the Columbia County Farmers Union, Director of Development at the Wisconsin Food Hub Cooperative
