Local food production: what are opportunities and obstacles?

    SANGERVILLE — The March 1 session of First Friday public discussions will focus on “Making Our Local Food Production Even Better.”

    From 7 to 9 p.m. a facilitated discussion will begin with a brief overview of the region’s agricultural history and current situation, then move to public input on ideas for improving local production and increasing economic resiliency.

    The discussion will be held at the East Sangerville Grange, preceded by a local food potluck supper starting at 6 p.m. so that all attendees can sample some of the midwinter foods available from local kitchens. The Grange has a fully equipped kitchen so bring something supper-ish to share if you wish. 

    Dexter Dover Area Towns in Transition (DDATT), sponsor of the First Friday discussions, is grateful to the Grange for hosting this event, as it befits the Grange’s agricultural heritage in their beautiful historic hall in rural Sangerville.

    The purpose of these monthly discussions is to gather people together for mutual discussion and civil sharing of ideas on various subjects which affect us all.
