Workshop participants will be charged with a mission - a mission to support and advocate for more local food consumption. We’ll outline the Bay Area’s food system, get hands-on in determining the location of prime sources for local foods, discuss the criteria that businesses listed in our Bay Area Local Food Guide (the local foodie bible) must adhere to, and provide concrete actions for creating change in your diet and community. You’ll receive membership in the Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF), access to a network of like-minded foodies, fun incentives to keep you active in the Alliance, and of course food & drink. Guest speaker Jason Mark, co-manager of Alemany Farm and co-author of Building the Green Economy: Success Stories from the Grassroots, will offer his thoughts on the opportunities and challenges of urban food production.
Cost: $50 membership donation to CAFF
