2021 Annual Meeting

1pm: At home screening of Gaining Ground
2pm: Annual Meeting
The Annual Meeting is sponsored by IDEA Farm Network and Food Works. It is an opportunity for members to catch up with each other and Food Works, and to share their needs for the coming year though voting on field day and workshop topics. Members of the Southern Illinois Farming Alliance, Food Works, and the IDEA Farm Network are encouraged to attend, and are welcome to invite guests interested in sustainable food and farming in Southern Illinois.
This year we’ll be gathering virtually, via Zoom. Please register below to receive event details and Zoom link. Tune in early at 1pm to watch Gaining Ground, Food Works’ 2014 documentary about the food system of Southern Illinois. https://www.fwsoil.org/annual-meeting.html
