Sponsored by Transition Colorado, Slow Money, Elephant Journal and others, the event focuses on Food Localization as Economic Development and takes place primarily at Boulder’s Millenium Harvest House. Panel discussions will include Reskilling for the Challenging Times Ahead, Food Security and Access in a Chaotic Economy, Forging a Foodshed Alliance, and more. The conference also includes a premiere screening of the documentary film “The Economics of Happiness“. From the event flyer: “The economy is on the precipice of an unprecedented transition – and this has profound implications for our local economy. This conference is an opportunity to explore how local food and farming can contribute to the resilience of our local economy, reduce our contribution to global warming, and ensure the health, well-being and self-reliance of all our citizens.” To learn more about Transition Colorado, visit this link.
