Pre-Summit Event: Tours, Spoken Word and Film Screening: Sunday, April 1, 2012

Leading up to the Summit, we are planning a self-guided tour of three locations that could anchor a new "Food Innovation Zone" in Washtenaw County. The Washtenaw Food Hub, Tilian Farm Development Center, and Food Gatherers will be hosting open houses, free and open to the public, from 1:00-3:00pm, on Sunday, April 1st.  

If you would like to attend, please RSVP to:

After the open house/tour, please join us at 6:00pm at the Morris Lawrence Building at WCC for a conversation, film screening and spoken word event honoring our friend and Michigan food advocate Chris Bedford. Chris' final film, "Getting Real About Food and the Future," was released in 2011. The film tells stories of the food revolution and features interviews with systems change luminaries like Bill McDonough, John McKnight, David Korten, Lester Brown and others.  Leading up to the film, local spoken word artists Lucas DiGia and Walter "Soul" Lacey, will riff on the meaning and place of food in our lives.  Local Amaizin' Pop popcorn and a possible performance by "Juice" will round out the evening.
