Wednesday the 27th, Sustainable North Bay--the people behind Sustainable Enterprise Conference--is hosting an Open Space Technology format event exploring the question, "What are the barriers to local festivals serving local food?"
If you care about this, Open Space is a great way to bring your unique perspective to a real opportunity for change. This will be a results-oriented activity drawing in part from the Sonoma County Food Action Plan. Have look at this link for more info: [http://festivalfoods.eventbrite.com]
