Tecumseh Land Trust presents Food Power

Food Power, a conference organized by Tecumseh Land Trust, is coming to Fairborn High School on Saturday, Nov. 5. The conference focuses on how local growers and eaters can change the economy.  Headlining the event is Will Allen, a noted urban farmer and community gardening advocate, winner of the MacArthur Genius Award and Michelle Obama’s White House garden coach.

The summit will pull together innovative growers, food policy advocates, “farm to school” pioneers, community gardeners and food distribution experts. After a keynote address by Allen, who will speak about his urban agriculture organization in Milwaukee called Growing Power, there will be breakout sessions on community gardening, food distribution systems and opportunities, how to influence food policy and more.

Registration cost for the event is $25, which includes a lunch that features local food and snacks. Registration may be completed at http://www.tecumsehlandtrust.org .
