A Consumer's Guide to Our Local Food System

  • Sarasota County Administration Center 1660 Ringling Blvd Sarasota, FL 34236 USA (map)

In response to a survey that asked what you wanted out of the Sustainable Sarasota Community Partnership Meetings, the number one topic requested for future speakers was local food. So, the first meeting of 2015 will include two speakers specifically addressing what YOU can do to make a difference in growing our local food economy!  

Robert Kluson, UF/IFAS Extension Sarasota County, will help us understand the various labels for local and organic foods.  

Don Hall, Transition Sarasota, will provide detailed guidance on where we can find local food of all types and how we can influence their availability. 

The speakers will focus on tangible, actionable steps we all can take to make a difference in our local food system. There will be a discussion afterwards to answer your questions and share ideas.

This meeting will take place in the 2nd floor Conference Room A/B. Please tell us you will be coming by registering (for free) here.
