USDA Food Security/Comm Garden Mtg






You are hereby formally invited to an informal discussion of community gardening and food security in Wisconsin. Mark you calendar for Wednesday, April 4, 9 am to noon, at Brown County UW-Extension, 1150 Bellevue Street, Green Bay. This is the third meeting of Extension, NRCS, and Rural Development staff in Wisconsin working together on community gardening and food security issues, and it promises to be interesting and informative for anyone working with similar projects.

Although we're not planning a rigid agenda, some areas we'll be covering include:

Hunger Prevention and Community Gardens--Types of Programs in WI
Funding Resources for Food Security and Community Gardening
Inter-Agency Collaboration on Food Security and Community Gardening
Establishing a Statewide, Web-Based Network of Community Gardens in WI
Planning a Statewide Community Garden Conference for Fall, 2001
Gathering Input on Local Application for USDA Community Food Projects Grant
Sharing Ideas, Plans, Resources, etc. etc.


You don't need to RSVP, but you may request minutes from the meeting if you are unable to attend--just send me a quick message via email. Please also forward this message to other individuals or agencies who may be interested in attending or receiving minutes. We'll have some snacks and refreshments available, but may also be ordering out lunch for those who are interested (so you may want to bring a little cash).


Directions:

From the SOUTH, take Interstate Hwy 43 to Mason Street Exit and go WEST (Left). Follow Mason Street about 2-3 miles to Bellevue St (Smitty's used cars and Shell Station on opposite corners--there's a stoplight at this corner) and go SOUTH (Left). Look for one-story brick building on right about a half-mile down the road.

From the NORTH, take Hwy 41 to Interstate Hwy 43 and go EAST. Stay on 43 until you circle around to the east side of Green Bay. Take the Mason St. exit and go WEST (into town). Follow Mason Street about 2-3 miles to Bellevue St (Smitty's used cars and Shell Station on opposite corners--there's a stoplight at this corner) and go SOUTH (Left). Look for one-story brick building on right about a half-mile down the road.

From the WEST, you have two choices: Take Hwy 29 to Hwy 41 SOUTH to the Mason St. Exit, and go EAST (into town). You'll need to stay on Mason for quite a while, crossing the Fox River and then the East River. About 2 blocks past the East River, look for Bellevue Street, and turn SOUTH (Right). Look for one-story brick building on the right. If you don't want to go all the way through town, you can take Hwy 29 to Hwy 41 NORTH, then take Interstate Hwy 43 EAST around Green Bay to the East Side. Look for the (East) Mason Street Exit, and go WEST (into town). Follow Mason Street about 2-3 miles to Bellevue St (Smitty's used cars and Shell Station on opposite corners--there's a stoplight at this corner) and go SOUTH (Left). Look for one-story brick building on right about a half-mile down the road.

I look forward to a fun and informative meeting! Hope you can make it.
