Cultivating Community Resilience - March 14

Hello Farm to School advocates,
We are encouraging everybody on the list-serv to reserve the evening of March 14 to join a Traverse City community conversation about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), FREE at the City Opera House. Please invite partners and collaborators as you see fit.

Convened by Groundwork, the event is titled "Cultivating Community Resilience," and will show the nationally acclaimed film "Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope," and then follow with a panel discussion about ACEs, with an emphasis on the our community programs and healing impact of bringing healthy, nutrient-dense local foods into our lives. The panel discussion will be led by Meghan McDermott, Groundwork's Food & Farming program director, and will be followed with an audience question and answer session. The event is FREE, but we have a strong early response and are asking people to reserve tickets to ensure a seat. Go to the Groundwork Facebook event page for list of panelists, details and link to free ticket reservation or the event page
