Louisville Main Library
Saturday, February 16, 9:30 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Check-In begins at 9 a.m.
Please join us for Seed Capital KY's annual local food event!
This event will feature a series of “kitchen table” discussions focused on key issues related to developing a thriving local food economy. Learn the results of a Seed Capital KY study that identifies large unmet demand for local food in Louisville from nationally renowned local food consultant, Karen Karp of Karp Resources.
Mayor Greg Fischer will give his third annual “State of the Local Food Economy” address, and will have a chat with Kentucky’s beloved farmer and poet, Wendell Berry, about what the local food “movement” means for farmers and our urban/rural relationships.
Ag Commissioner James Comer will discuss State efforts to connect farmers and food.
Stephen Reily, founder of Seed Capital KY will emcee the event, which will include area farmers, business owners and leaders to engage members of the community in the discussion, and explore a range of topics including funding, food policy, resources and future opportunities.
