Save the Date: Illinois Stewardship Alliance Annual Meeting February 15th

You care about food. You care about farms. You care about clean water, healthy soils, and the well-being of your community. You’re concerned with the current state of our food system– the declining number of family farmers and the shift to corporate control– and you’re ready to join the movement for change.

Join Illinois Stewardship Alliance on Thursday, February 15th, from 10:30am – 4:30pm to learn how you can make a difference.

Alliance members from across the state will converge at the State House Inn in Springfield on Thursday, Feb. 15th, to celebrate our victories, strategize around our losses, and set our sights on 2018.  You’ll hear about how the soil beneath our feet can clean our drinking water and fight climate change, the latest trends in Buy Fresh, Buy Local, and how state and federal decision-makers will influence the food on our plates in the coming year.  You’ll enjoy a locally-sourced lunch and plenty of opportunities to network with a grassroots community that cares as much as you do, including a happy hour from 4:30 – 6pm.  And you’ll come away with energy and tools to work together toward a more just, sustainable food system. The membership meeting is open to the public but space is limited.
