Ken Meter to Speak on Local Food as Economic Development

Cheshire County Conservation District Annual Meeting

Farms are a vital part of the iconography of rural NH and many people in our region depend on them for healthy food.  Ken Meter will address the local food system in our region at the Cheshire County Conservation District’s 2010 Annual Meeting. Ken Meter is a nationally recognized farm and food economist and local food system leader out of Minneapolis MN.  The community is invited to join the Conservation District in exploring this part of our rural culture at the CCCD annual meeting.  It will be held on Tuesday December 7, 2010 at 6:00pm at Alyson’s Orchard in Walpole.

Join the Conservation District in celebrating the success of 2010 and honoring Alyson’s Orchard with the 2010 Cooperator of the Year award. There will be registration and an hors d’oeuvres & dessert buffet at 6:00pm.   Please RSVP for the meeting before December 1st by contacting the Cheshire County Conservation District at 603-756-2988 ext.116 or  A $10-20 donation is suggested.
