Local government, local food systems: Navigating procedures, processes & partnerships

August 24, 2022 10:00AM - 12:00PM

Join us on Wednesday, August 24 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. for "Local government, local food systems: Navigating procedures, processes & partnerships." This webinar, sponsored by the Michigan Local Food Council Network, will give an overview of the building blocks of local government in Michigan, a deeper dive into the fundamentals of planning and zoning at the local level and insights into how local food has and should be part of local government policy. The webinar will include hands-on activities and take-away worksheets. While designed for local food councils, the webinar will also offer resources and insights for professional planners as well as local government officials. Megan Masson-Minock, local government consultant for MLFCN, will draw on her over twenty years of planning consulting, more than a decade in food systems work, and inspiration from the dozens of communities and food councils with whom she has been privileged to work.
