Unfortunately nothing on the web yet (that I can see, anyway) @
and apologies if this is too off-topic, but most of the vegans I know
are also locavorically-inclin­ed, so here goes:

> Thank you for your interest in an upcoming workshop hosted by the
> CIRA Local Food Systems Initiative. We look forward to having you on
> Saturday, November 15, at UNC-Chapel Hill (Hyde Hall).

> Workshop Objectives

> The workshop, titled "Local Democracy, Local Food: Building a
> Collaborative Mandate for Research Food & Justice in NC," aims to
> engage community- and university-based researchers and activists in
> a lively discussion about the challenges of researching social
> justice and ecological sustainability in local food systems in North
> Carolina and to collaboratively define a research agenda. The event
> will feature Ken Meter of the Crossroads Resource Center in
> Minnesota as a keynote speaker and a range of voices working within
> the local-food and food-justice movements in North Carolina,
> including Nancy Creamer of the Center for Environmental Farming
> Systems, Tony Macias of Student Action with Farmworkers, Savi Horne
> of the Land Loss Prevention Project, and Sally Lee of FLO Foods (a
> UNC-based student group). Speakers from NC regions involved in
> CIRA's sustainable development and poverty reduction collaboration
> will address poverty and food access issues.

> This is a workshop-style conference designed to further a
> conversation between sustainable agriculture, community activism,
> and social science research in order to develop research questions
> and measures that could inform and enhance community projects
> especially with regard to food justice.

> Logistical Information

> We will begin at 9:30am and conclude at 4:30pm on Saturday the 15th.
> The program will include breakfast, lunch, and a light snack. Please
> email Rebecca Schaffer at [address removed] with any
> questions and to RSVP (seating limited).

> Thanks very much for your interest and we look forward to seeing you
> on Saturday, November 15!

> Sincerely,
> CIRA-UNC Team Planning Committee
> Dorothy Holland
> Sarah Dempsey
> Charles Price
> Alice Brooke Wilson
> Rebecca Schaffer
