Florida Farm Conference & Food Council

Garden. By Jon Butts.

On Today’s WMNF Sustainable Living program we talked about the Florida Regional Small Farms and Alternative Enterprises Conference taking place in Fort Myers April 1 & 2 and a Florida Food Policy Council meeting taking place on Sunday, April 3, also in Ft Myers.

They’re having a bunch of great sessions at the conference and we talked with two guests about the classes they’re involved with; Dr. Robert Kluson, Food Labels & Certifications and Vanessa Bielema, Urban Farming. Rachael Shapiro also joined the show to talk about the Florida Food Policy Council Meeting.

This is new to Florida and they’re looking for board members that are interested in local food, farms and other issues about healthy food and true food security. We talked about the different sessions at the conference, Friday’s farm tours, and ECHO’s involvement in the conference, etc. www.flfpc.org https://www.eventbrite.com/e/regional-small-farms-and-alternative-enterprises-conference-tickets-21309745021
