Press Release: Keeping it local

Sorry for just throwing an unedited press release out, but the topic of this meeting just fits perfectly with what we're trying to do, so it seemed to make sense:

A northeastern Wisconsin local food co-op forum will be held on Friday, November 16, 2007 from 1pm to 4pm at Moraine Technical College, Fond du Lac in room A111. Margaret Bau, Cooperative Development Specialist, USDA Rural Development will provide information on cooperatives, the histories of cooperatives in Wisconsin, cooperative trends, and how to start and organize a cooperative. In the second half of the program Anne Reynolds Assistant Director of University of Wisconsin Center of Cooperatives will present successful local food cooperative models in Wisconsin and nationally. She teaches in the Center’s Director Leadership program, works with boards on governance issues, leadership, evaluation, and strategic planning. She has led research and cooperative development projects in the areas of board governance, cooperative education for emerging leaders, value added agriculture, housing, and home health care. She served for four years as an Advisory member of Home Grown Wisconsin, a cooperative that markets local produce for 25 farmer members. The forum is sponsored by Glacierland RC&D, Enlightened Schoolyard Project and Eastern WI Sustainable Farmers Network. It is free to the public. Advance registration will assure enough materials for everyone. For more information and registration please contact, Fred Depies 920-418-2718, Dean Malloy 920-251-6036 or e-mail fkdepies@charter.net
