The League of Women Voters Leelanau County will host a forum entitled “Food Security” on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 at noon in the lower level of the Government Center in Suttons Bay. The forum will explore the impacts of a changing climate on sustainable food security and mitigations and adaptive strategies to address these changes. The panelists include Dave Barrons, former TV weather reporter and climate change activist; Richard Allen, Leland yard farmer and gardener; Kelly Lively, Policy and Outreach Partner at Cherry Capital Foods; Jim Nugent, former head of MSU Horticultural Center and local fruit farmer; and Jim Schwantes of Sweeter Song CSA and contributor to local farmers’ markets. Before the forum at 11:15 AM there will be a meet and greet with local and regional food-related organizations and businesses who will provide opportunities to learn new skills and information on what an average person can do.

Many people bring a sack lunch. LWVLC business meeting to follow presentation.
