Early bird registration discounts to Groundwork's Farms, Food & Health Conference and Culinary Medicine Training ends July 22! 

Groundwork's Food & Farming team has been working closely with our partners at Munson Healthcare, Great Lakes Culinary Institute and Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District to put together the first-ever joint Farms, Food and Health Conference and Culinary Medicine Training. Please join us this September 26–29, on the shores of Grand Traverse Bay, in beautiful Traverse City, Michigan, to share in our largest, most multifaceted, and most exciting conference yet! Early bird discount registrationends in just a few days! 

This event brings together the cross-sector networking and interactive workshops and presentations of Farms, Food & Health with the hands-on culinary training of Culinary Medicine. By tying these two events together, as well as adding a large public keynote address, teacher training workshop, expo, and many more conference-related activities, this event will highlight innovative initiatives, engage a large, diverse audience and provide much-needed technical skill-building for healthcare providers and educators.
