Farmshed Looking for Board Members
For the City-Times
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2013-2015 Central Rivers Farmshed Board of Directors. We are looking for people with a passion for local food and farming, who also have the skills to help us move our region towards a collaborative and sustainable food system. Our growth over the past year and a half is testament to the increased awareness and desire to bring local foods and farms to the forefront of our communities.
Farmshed strives to spread that message through our educational programming and events and in the active collaborations in which we engage. There is no one way to tackle the food system, instead we have tapped into those fighting the good fight beside us, joining forces to strengthen our work. You will continue to see this evolve; know that we are determined to bring about significant change to our regional food system over the next several years. As a Farmshed board member, you will be an integral part of this growing movement in Central Wisconsin, helping spread our message and impact across the region.
