The 2018 Pioneer Valley Grows Forum will be a day of learning about the challenges of ongoing food systems projects in the Valley. Together we will provide feedback and support to those projects.
For years, PVGrows Forums have provided our community valuable opportunities to make new connections, adopt fresh perspectives, and expand our capacity to work together. The 2018 Forum will leverage this tradition of collaboration to dig deep with the leaders of some of the most innovative – and challenging – food systems projects in the Valley.
The centerpiece of the event will be a series of roundtable discussions during which attendees will have the opportunity to work closely with the leaders of the featured projects. Together we will bring our shared knowledge to the table, brainstorm new strategies and tactics, and forge new opportunities for collaboration. As a community we will collaborate for a thriving food system.
