Upper Midwest CRAFT Field Day

Location: Byron Colby Barn, 1561 Jones Point Rd, Grayslake, IL



Potluck: Please bring a dish to pass. 



Are you at a turning point with your farm business? Angelic Organics Learning Center (AOLC) and the Liberty Prairie Foundation (LPF) are hosting an Upper Midwest CRAFT field day to explore the many facets of farm business transition and how to make them work for you. Whether you are looking to shift markets, change your land base, or transition from farming independently to managing a team, you will learn how to navigate making changes to your farm business from those who have experienced it firsthand.  



The day will include a roundtable discussion between attendees and a panel of local farmers facilitated by Jen Miller (LPF Director, Farm Entrepreneurship) and Nathan Aaberg (LPF Director, Conservation and Working Lands). Discussion will take place over a potluck lunch and end with a farm tour of the LPF Incubator Farm and the FBDC fields. Please bring a dish to pass.

Dance for Hurricane Recovery!

 Location: NYC at the Union Square Ballroom



World Food Day is celebrated each year to mobilize global awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger. 

Food Tank is also doing our part by planning a very unique event in New York City in partnership with Broadway Stars as we “Dance for Hurricane Recovery!”

One hundred percent of ticket revenue is supporting food relief for Puerto Rico and the Caribbean via #GiveHealthy and the Feeding America Network, which are providing emergency assistance to Puerto Rico. The World Food Program USA is supporting emergency assistance in Dominica.

The event is being held in NYC at the Union Square Ballroom on Monday, Oct 16 from 5:30PM-7:00PM.
