michigan young farmers!

posted October 26, 2010

we love this group – the Michigan young farmer coalition.  Here’s a call out from them.

The MYFC is gearing up to tour the west side of the Lower Mitten this November and December to meet & eat with young, new and beginning farmers and our supporters. We are in the preliminary stages of the planning and are trying to gauge interest in each regional “hub.”

We’ve identified the following areas as hubs to visit. Please reply to <michiganyoungfarmercoalition@gmail.com>  directly if you live in one of these areas and would be interested in hosted or attending a meet & eat with MYFC members from the SE Mitten area.

– Kalamazoo
– Grand Rapids
– Muskegon
– Belle Aire / Traverse City Area
– Marquette … early next year

There is a School and Community Garden Conference in Kzoo on November 13th (Saturday), so that evening would be perfect for meet & eat in the area.

ISLAND has pledged to help coordinate an event in the Belle Aire area on the weekend of November 19-21.

Chris Bedford has offered support in coordinating an event in the Muskegon area at a date to be determined.

We’re looking forward to meeting and eating with you!

Peas!
