AUGUST

Here's a brief overview of what the Community Food Systems Team has been up to lately and some opportunities to get involved:
  • We are excited to welcome Dr. Julie Dawson to Wisconsin! Julie is an integrated specialist in the Department of Horticulture and her focus is on urban and regional food systems. You can hear about her work and her thoughts on emerging issues in food systems at the team meeting on Sept 4-5th.
  •  UWEX colleagues can now register for the CFS Team 2-day meeting on Sept 4-5th! To register and learn more about the 2-day affair, please follow this link:  CFS Team Meeting.
  • Are you engaged in community food systems programming?  Are you interested in an opportunity to share your scholarly work?  We want to hear from you at this year's face-to-face meeting!  Click here for more info and to submit a proposal:  Presentation Proposal Request.
  • UWEX colleagues if you have plans to do a bit of outreach for your place-based food systems work, consider using the team's colorful new retractable banner

Thanks and be well,
UWEX Community Food Systems Team
