Recently I had an opportunity to participate in a panel discussion at a conference for the American Planning Association in Decatur on the topic of local foods. Specifically, the topic we were given was, “Real Food Happens Here: Local foods infrastructure, programs, and projects in Urbana-Champaign.”
I was there to represent Common Ground and its involvement in the local food system. The other participants were Wes Jarrell from Prairie Fruits Farm, Zach Grant from the UI sustainable student farm, and Nicole Bridges with Prosperity Gardens. I created a brief PowerPoint presentation and also managed to record the audio. I’ve put them together and made it available online.
