Join community members, farmers, government officials and school personnel on May 2, 2014 at the Double Tree in Green Tree, Pittsburgh to discuss how we can make fresh food available to everyone in western Pennsylvania—by connecting schools with local farms, providing access to fresh food in underserved rural and urban communities, and supporting local farmers. We're excited to annouce our keynote speakers:

Doug Davis, Director of Food Service for the Burlington School Food Project in the city of Burlington, Vermont, has been involved with the Farm 2 School movement for over ten years and is considered a "national celebrity" in this arena. He has grown one of the most successful Farm to School programs in the country.

Ron Finley, co-founder of LA Green Grunds, is igniting a (horti)cultural revolution! Ron envisions a world where gardening is gangsta, where cool kids know their nutrition and where communities embrace the act of growing, knowing and sharing the best of the earth’s fresh-grown food.
