Anthony Flaccavento comes to West Michigan

Aug 30, 2016 4:29:00 PM / by Local First

Local First is excited to host Anthony Flaccavento this fall as we gear up for our fall celebrations. Anthony is an organic farmer, small business owner, author and activist who has worked for more than 30 years to strengthen the economy and food system in both rural and urban settings. He speaks about the importance of sustainable development.

His book Building a Healthy Economy from the Bottom Up: Harnessing Real-World Experience for Transformative Change (Culture Of The Land) connects a broad foundation of experience with a clear economic analysis and an array of public policy ideas that, taken together, help point the way towards more widely shared prosperity and a more resilient, vibrant economy. It is a call-to-action for innovators, entrepreneurs, policymakers, community activists, environmentalists and all citizens who want to create thriving, locally-based economies, and a more just, sustainable world.

Join us at Windmill Island Gardens at 3:30pm and add to the discussion. Then celebrate the season at Coppercraft for the Lakeshore Fork Fest at 6:00pm. More information about both events at localfirst.com/events.
