Keeping our local farms intact and productive is in everyone’s best interest, but it takes much more than just shopping at the farmers market. Creating, nurturing and growing local agriculture will be explored at the Foodshed Forum in Colorado Springs February 22-23, 2019. In this episode of Peak Environment, co-producer Ellen Johnson-Fay discusses the forum with Sean Svette, Asst. Manager of the SWELL program at UCCS.

“This is about making really nutritious food available to everyone,” Ellen reminds us. “And it’s possible!” Highlights of the Forum will include an address by Rebecca Jewett of the Palmer Land Trust. LiveWell Colorado is a funding partner in this year’s Foodshed Forum.

For more information about the forum, including registration, email Sean Svette. Also, if you’d like Ellen Johnson-Fay to start emailing local food information to you, send an email to her
