Event description
Our April Sustainable Breakfast Series will feature a panel conversation on local food systems.

About this Event

How do we build a stronger local food system? We're bringing together four local food leaders to talk about the intersection of food production, sourcing, and supporting diverse businesses in our region.

  • Jess Guffey Calkins, Community Food Systems Educator with Extension Dane County will provide data and background knowledge on what we see produced and sold locally and moderate the panel.
  • Hear from Elena Terry, Executive Chef & Founder of Wild Bearies, on indigenous food knowledge and resilient food systems.
  • Kingsley Gobourne will share his experience starting Artemis Provisions and Cheese during this past year.
  • Claire Strader, the Organic Vegetable Educator for Extension Dane County and FairShare CSA Coalition, will talk about how community supported agriculture has evolved this year and the perspective of farmers on providing food.

Join us to hear from these community leaders and learn how you can support their efforts to be a part of the sustainable food solution.
