Dear friends and colleagues,
We'll gather again on October 7 for another rewarding day of working together towards Ben Stinner's vision of healthier agroecosystems and sustainable communities.
Please have a look at the attached invitation to the 5th Annual Stinner Summit and join us if you can. Follow the links to register on-line.
A meeting has been scheduled for Thursday afternoon, October 1st from 1 to 2pm at Ohio Dept of Agriculture to discuss various grant possibilities for a MPU project with USDA rep Deb Rausch. Amalie Lipstreu with ODA, has organized the meeting so members of the poultry processing work group - and anyone else having an interest in the development of additional processing capacity - can discuss the opportunities.
I wanted to forward this article about "The Green Taam" to the meat processing and other working groups of Local Food Systems. Amalia and Ariella participated in many of the Mobile Processing Unit (MPU) meetings and discusions which were held at OARDC this past year. The Cleveland Jewish News featured their new enterprise in a recent edition.
A meeting was held February 11, 2009 to continue the planning for a mobile poultry processing unit here in Ohio. The meeting notes are attached.
John Anderson, from the Animal Science dept here at OARDC forwarded this notice about an upcoming webinar sponsored by Penn State:
