Hamilton County Sustainable Food & Farming Forum

April 30, 2022 @ 1:00 pm 3:00 pm EDT

We’ve all heard it said– factory farms are inevitable and necessary to feed the world.
…but is this true?
Do we really need to rely on a food system based on factory farms to support the world’s ever-growing population?
Join the Hoosier Environmental Council’s Senior Staff Attorney and Agricultural Policy Director, Kim Ferraro, and Katy Rogers of Teter Organic Farm in Noblesville, online on Saturday, April 30, 2022 from 1 to 3 pm to learn why this is a myth and how you can get involved in the sustainable food movement in Hamilton County, Indiana!
ALL Hoosiers–rural, suburban or urban–are impacted by our unsustainable and industrialized food system that is a leading cause of the most serious environmental problems we face, including climate change.
Learn about:
–the role that your food choice can play in creating a healthier community and planet
–how to help protect the air, water and the communities of Hamilton County from the harms of industrialized animal agriculture
–how to become part of the local and statewide movement for common sense change of policies that can make Hamilton County–and all of Indiana –a more sustainable, equitable, and humane place to eat and live!
We’ll learn about sustainable food and farming choices as well as take a closer look at Hamilton County’s current environment for empowering citizens to easily make healthier choices.
The forum is supported by our local partners: Carmel Green Initiative, Teter Organic Farm, Fishers Flower Farm, Sierra Club Hoosier Chapter, Earth Charter Indiana, SRAP (Socially Responsible Agriculture Project), Citizens Action Coalition, Humane Society of the United States, The Downstream Project and Sea Salt & Cinnamon.
This event is free and open to the public. Don’t miss it!
