Weigh in on policies impacting locally-grown food

Written by 

Farmers are invited to a listening session on regulations that could hamper or help local food production and markets, being held from 4 to 6 p.m., Oct. 22, at Western Carolina University.

The listening session is one of several statewide aimed at creating a list of policies and regulations to address barriers and obstacles to stronger, healthier local food economies.

WNC farmers can meet with experts from North Carolina’s agricultural and regulatory community to share issues, ask questions and advocate for new policies that affect agriculture in the region.

It is sponsored by the Western North Carolina Food Policy Council and the N.C. Sustainable Local Foods Advisory Council.

Held in Blue Ridge Hall conference room A. Space limited, so RSVP is encouraged.
