Join us at The Illinois Soil, Food, Water, and Composting Summit on November 3rd 2017!
Where: Robert H. Metcalfe Federal Building, 77 West Jackson Blvd, Chicago, IL 60604
Purpose: To bring together leaders and practitioners working on soil conservation, water quality protection, sustainable agriculture/local food, food recovery, and composting to learn more about the connectivity between issues and explore opportunities for collaborative work that lead to eco-effective, socially-responsive, and economically viable results across topic areas.
Outcomes: Develop tangible policy, project, and program ideas that answer the following questions:
- What are the linkages and leverage points between protecting Illinois waterways, large-scale compost application, and growing food for local consumption?
- How can systems within institutions/businesses support food recovery for people in need and composting?
- Can Illinois grow a local food economy without ruining its water ways and natural resources?
This event is organized by Seven Generations Ahead in partnership with:
