Each year, Purdue Extension, along with many partnering organizations, hosts the annual Indiana Local Food Summit. This event provides learning, networking and sharing opportunities for the people, communities and organizations working to create an Indiana food system that is more resilient, economically vibrant and diverse. We spent an entire day in professional development training with Marke Winne, author of Stand Together or Starve Alone. NWI Food Council Board member and founder of Peace Baptist Garden & Farms, Pastor Marty Henderson, was featured on the Keynote panel discussion food justice in Indiana. It was a an empowering two days of making connections and strengthening our statewide network!
