The speakers, topics and meals recently announced for the 15th annual Healthy Foods Local Farms Conference show that this will be a very substantive and enjoyable event.

There are also clear faith community connections to the topics of sustainable farming, health and care for creation. Leaders such as Hank Graddy and Sister Claire McGowan make no secret of their faith commitments. Author Wendell Berry will speak, musician John Gage will sing, and Chefs Christopher Rosier and Kathy Foster will cook.

The Kentucky Council of Churches is one of the sponsors this year, and we encourage attendance. The complete program can be downloaded here.
