The two day seminar, Monday at the U of M, Tuesday at the Landscape Arboretum was a flush success. Sponsored by the Healthy Food, Healthy Lives Institute and the Landscape Arboretum, the problem of making local, sustainable, and all-natural food available to all sectors of society was the focus of lectures, panel discussions, power point presentations and small group discussions. Food Corps! The nascent gov sponsored effort with the same end, was the take-away, embraceable commitment.
