Jan. 21 Food Summit Follow-up - Postponed!

From today's inbox:

In October we came together for Come to the Table: Food Summit South Puget Sound.  The Food Summit marked the first step in our effort to create a plan for a sustainable local food system.  In November we held a community debriefing at The Evergreen State College to talk about what we learned at the Food Summit and continue the discussions.  Now, we are ready to take the next steps.
On January 14th and 21st we will be holding follow-up meetings to review the work that has happened since the Food Summit and finalize our draft goals and actions for each of the 6 Whole Measures areas (Healthy People, Strong Communities, Justice and Fairness, Vibrant Farms, Sustainable Ecosystems, Thriving Local Economies).  The students in the TESC Ecological Agriculture program who have been organizing the notes from the Food Summit will present their work, which will be followed by participatory discussions designed to finalize the goals and actions and begin discussing implementation strategies.
The follow-up meetings will be held in the Community Room at the Tumwater Timberland Regional Library, 7023 New Market St.  Each day will focus on three of the 6 Whole Measures topics:

[I've left January 14th meetings out of this later event post.]

January 21st
10:15am-12:15pm – Vibrant Farms
12:30-2:30pm – Sustainable Ecosystems
2:45-4:45pm – Thriving Local Economies
Plan to attend the session or sessions that you are most interested in continuing to be a part of.  Additional information about the meetings, including agendas and background material, will be sent out in early January.
Also, feel free to share this message with folks you know who might have missed the Food Summit but who want to be involved in creating a sustainable local food system.  Everyone is welcome at the table.
