Presentation by Jen Comer (Creston Farmers Market and Creston City Councillor)
This workshop will take you through “local government 101”. Farmers’ markets present significant opportunities for local governments: they create local economic development, address food security issues, build community connections, and support environmental sustainability. The challenge is getting your message heard by your city council, building a productive relationship, and planning for a thriving future together. We will look at specific ways farmers’ markets can get involved in community planning, tips on working with your city council, and how this will ultimately make our communities more sustainable.
