The public is invited to join the Southeastern Massachusetts Agricultural Partnership for their Annual Meeting – a celebration of the organization’s accomplishments in 2019, networking with farmers and local food allies from across the region, and a presentation of awards for individuals key to the success of local agriculture in Southeastern Massachusetts in 2019.
“This year at our Annual Meeting we will additionally be organizing a special interactive dot survey to help identify what SEMAP’s priorities should be in 2020 and beyond. What challenges facing our local food system are most important to our constituents? What challenges are most important to our region? We’d love to hear the public’s input and have you join us for this special event as we continue to update our long-term strategy, and focus in on those issues where we can drive success for the region’s food system.” – SEMAP Outreach Coordinator, Jonathan Gray
Three individuals will be celebrated for their work in the food system including the Local Agricultural Champion Award, the Community Support Award, and the SEMAP Recognition award. Attendees are encouraged to RSVP online by November 19th.
