Food & Grower’s Association

Annual Meeting and Potluck 

Sept 18th

 

Wednesday, September 18, 2019, 6:30 PM, all FGA members and the public are invited to attend the annual meeting, to be held at the Pavilion at Liberty Park in Batesville.  This meeting will be held in conjunction with our September Community Gathering.

This special potluck will feature a taco bar, prepared by Big Four Cafe.  There will be a vegetarian option.  All tableware and drinks will be provided as well.

Our guest speaker is Nate Brownlee.  Nate has been farming since 2009 and is very active in farm life and farm networking.  His experience includes shearing sheep in Maine, caring for cattle in New York and slaughtering chickens in Vermont.  He prefers to spend time caring for and working with animals in a pasture.   Nate, and his wife, Liz, own and operate Nightfall farm near Seymour Indiana.  Nate and Liz started a chapter of Young Farmers in Indiana and are involved statewide in supporting and networking with all farmers.  Nate was hired by the FGA in 2016 to coordinate SIFTI – our farmer training program. Nate’s talk is titled “A Future with Farmers”.

All this for the one low price of your potluck dish!  Please bring a dish prepared with local, sustainable, whole foods if possible.  Appetizers, salads and desserts will complement the taco bar!  Don’t want to cook? The price is $10 at the door per person for the public, $5 at the door per person if you are a member of FGA.

Reservations are appreciated by September 13 and can be made by calling Deanna Hookway at 812-212-5432 or emailing: contact@foodandgrowers.com.  Please indicate if you will bring a dish or pay at the door.  Said you were coming but cannot make it?  RSVP regrets to the same address by September 16.

The Food & Growers Association was formed to respond to the needs of farmers, parents and health professionals who see the connections between community health improvement, sustainable agriculture and a viable local economy in the southeast Indiana region.  FGA is an initiative to build a sustainable local market for foods produced in and around southeast Indiana.
