What gives some foods their Michigan-ness?
What gives some foods their “Michigan-ness? Faculty members Wynne Wright, Jim Bingen, and Extension Educator Rob Sirrine hosted a one- day public workshop June 24 to explore the possibilities for a place-based food system in north-western Michigan. Place-based foods are foods with a distinctive social and geographical identity whose unique tastes can be traced to the growing conditions and cultural practices of production. Place-based food systems are a great catalyst for regional development and cultural preservation. Want to know more, check out www.fooddemocracyproject.org.
