Food & the Wisconsin Idea is a series of meetings looking at how Wisconsin communities view food. They would like to invite any farmer’s market managers or anyone who has an interested in the farmer’s market to attend a webinar being held on May 17th. Pre-Registration is preferred. Below you will find the information on how to pre-register for the event.
Title: Citizens Owning Local Foods Science: Empowering Farmers Market Managers Around Data Empowering citizens starts with the idea that facts matter, and that science helps citizens establish some facts about their food system—farmers markets in this case. Panelists Alfonso Morales & Lauren Suerth of Madison and Dusty Krikau of Fond du Lac will (1) describe citizen science research methods for food systems work, (2) explain the theory of citizen science, and (3) demonstrate the operationalization of the theory into an online portal, Metrics + Indicators for Impact, mifimarkets.org. Farmers market managers can use the tools to collect data, report it, and use it to shape conversations in their communities.
Studio audience location: Dane County Extension office at 5201 Fen Oak Drive, Madison. We promised to take one event this spring “off campus.” If the technology works, we hope to take the show on the road to another county in Wisconsin in the Fall of 2018.
