Interested in creating opportunities for and celebrating good food – food that is healthy, affordable, and sustainably produced? Want to join a grassroots campaign for better food policies?
Food Day 2012 (the second annual event) is scheduled for this October, and organizers are hoping it will be bigger and better than last year! Beth Nollner represented the Boston Tree Party at the second Food Day planning meeting of the year, and discussed ways we could get involved in this great annual event. We are still working on how we can be involved, possibly by supporting / joining others who have activities and events in the works. [But we are planning a great BTP event for a weekend in the fall, so stay tuned for details on that!]
One key message from the meeting was that, while the day itself is important (which organizers compare to Earth Day) and all the activities that were held last year were a great expression of the ideas and ideals behind the day, it’s about much more than that. Like the Boston Tree Party itself, Food Day is also about creating a community and building a network around the issues and topics we all care about deeply. So if you would like to learn more and join in the fun, check out the Food Day website.
