Working Together To Strengthen Our Local Food System

The BC Assoication of Farmers' Markets, in partnership with the Richmond Food Security Society, are hosting the conference "Working Together To Strengthen Our Local Food System," in Steveston, BC.

The conference features an extremely impressive line-up of speakers and session topics, all centred around sustaining local food.  Rachelle is on the Board of Directors for the BCAFM, and has been working really hard with a team of fellow Board Members, to put together an impressive conference this year.
