ACORN’s Annual Meeting and Keynote Speakers Will Highlight Regenerative Agriculture

MIDDLEBURY, VT – The Addison County Relocalization Network (ACORN) will host
its Annual Meeting at American Flatbread Middlebury on Wednesday, November 13
from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM.

Regenerative Agriculture, number one on Whole Foods Market’s Top Ten Food
Trends for 2020, will be the topic of the night. Keynote speakers Nancy and John
Hayden of The Farm Between will discuss their newly published book Farming on
the Wild Side: The Evolution of a Regenerative Organic Farm and Nursery. The book
was published by Vermont’s own Chelsea Green Publishing. In addition to
regenerative agriculture, Nancy and John will cover biodiversity, soil health and
resilience in agriculture.

All community stakeholders who are passionate about the Champlain Valley’s local
food culture and economy are invited to attend. Lynn Coale, ACORN's Executive
Director, will recap ACORN’s 2019 food advocacy work including the inaugural
Farmacy health care share program while also looking ahead to what is planned for
2020.

ACORN encourages anyone interested in the local food system, from farmers to
citizens to legislators to come out and meet neighbors, other community members
and activists who are supporting local food initiatives.

A $10 donation includes flatbread and a cash bar will feature local spirits, brews and
ciders. RSVP by Monday, November 11 to info@acornvt.org.
